(Bruce Leban, on python-ideas:)

ntpath still gets drive-relative paths wrong on Windows:

>>> ntpath.join(r'\\a\b\c\d', r'\e\f')
# should be r'\\a\b\e\f'

>>> ntpath.join(r'C:\a\b\c\d', r'\e\f')
# should be r'C:\e\f'

(same behavior in Python 2.7 and 3.3)

(Let's also make sure PEP 428 / pathlib fixes this.)
