I cave an question regarding to pdb_ interface.
in 2.2 pdb_nisplus code I translated some strings from dos to unix and
vice-versa. this translation helped to manage information correctly from
windows side and from unix side.
now unix_to_dos and dos_to_unix calls are gone in 3.0, what should I do?
is this translation needed at all in 3.0?
