Python does things I don't understand with paths on Windows, but they
usually turn out right.
72 def setBuilddir(self, builddir):
73 assert self.parent
74 self.builddir = builddir
75 self.basedir = os.path.join(self.bot.basedir, self.builddir)
76 if not os.path.isdir(self.basedir):
it's using os.path.join, which is the right way. I'm not sure why
Python chooses to use a / there instead of \.
