I've trained my users to understand and use Universal
Naming Convention (UNC) style paths.

eg: \\fileserver\forms\purchasing

But in Webdisk, in the path entry text field in the
upper left, the user would have to enter:

/fileserver/forms/purchasing

Now, for computer programmers, remembering when to use
\ and when to use / and when to double up \'s or /'s is
easy. But I find for many general users, these sorts of
inconsistancies can really cause problems.

So my feature request is to allow UNC style in the path
text field, and have Webdisk translate it internally as
required.

    Added this to the new release. The web.xml now has a new
    option for "useuncpaths".
