Unfortunately, if you use platform-specific file separators, your build.xml 
doesn't work on all platforms. If you mandate a standard file representation 
for Ant, any characters you choose will probably be a pain for someone, but 
at least you can build cross-platform. (In the extremely unlikely case that, 
e.g. the path separator was ; and a filename included ;, you would use 
character escaping: \; )
