I do, too, but I figured it doesn’t hurt to try. If there is some small chance that this can still be changed, it would save us all a nasty case of carpal-tunnel syndrome from typing this unnecessary construction all the way from now to eternity. “fileURLWithPath:” is extremely verbose and redundant for something that is used so often, and it's the one thing that I’ve always hated about the URL-based file APIs. I’m kicking myself for not thinking to request this earlier, but better late than never, I suppose.
