# Filename.chop_extension "x.y/z";;
- : string = "x"

Oh come on. This is correct according to the specs,
but no one would believe this function is chopping
off the extension here :)


let y = (concat (directory x) (basename x)) in
assert x = y

is not guarranteed, only that x,y are 'equivalent'.
What does that mean? In particular can I assume:

is_implicit x = is_implicit y
is_relative x = is_relative y
