For Directory.make_short() the only things which are left could be considered splitting hairs.

1. Do we need to remove '"\/:' from the file name - if these characters are there then the file name is not valid in the first place.

2. These characters '+,;=[]' should really be changed to '_' if we want to match more closely how Windows makes short names.

I can write a patch for the above if they should be fixed and either way I can add tests for this function. (the test I had for testing my own patch - almost completely pass - but the only failure was depending on point 2.)
