That should be fine, and if for some reason it isn't, we'll find out  
pretty quickly and deal with it.

VMS::Filespec is more of a special case because it's used during the  
build and has hand-rolled XS code hard-wired in vms/vms.c, but because  
of that it also doesn't need to go through xsubpp or other extension- 
building steps and shouldn't have any need for special treatment in
