- Add test cases and docs for Windows \\?\ and \\?\UNC\ naming conventions.
- Should operations.cpp assert or BOOST_ASSERT on more preconditions?
- Apply PJP's Wide/Narrow conversion proposal to traits, once he stabilizes it.
- Glob syntax -> regex syntax converter. See
lists.boost.org/boost-users/2004/01/5770.php, and John Maddock's

I've opened this as an issue. It needs to be answered in the context of what
comparison is used for. Remember that equivalence should be determined by the
equivalent() function. An important use of operator< is when path is used as a
map or set key. Not sure how locale impacts that.
- Move canonize() and normalize() to convenience.hpp?
- Need wording to the effect that basic_path::iterators are invalidated in
the basic_path object's lifetime ends.
- Move name checks to convenience.hpp?
- Move rename_all to convenience.hpp?
