I wondered whether filename translation could be seperated out from 
UnixLib.  Standardise the interface a bit and convert into a module that 
could be generally accessible by all applications, without a requirement 
to link against UnixLib or Libscl.

Since filename translation isn't really a performance penalty, then a 
couple of SWIs to translate between RISC OS and Unix filenames would

It's not a hack, it's a standard Unix shell feature.

The other possible addition would be a manual for the C library 
functions themselves, most of which could be extracted from glibc.
