Just to throw another idea out there, you could go to a double character 
delimiter like "::" which should be easy to differentiate from the x:\ 
windows syntax and isn't TOO bad readability/consistency wise. Still 
better than  parsing and stat()'ing each possible chunk, which seems 
like it would be required if you want to use a single delimiter and 
allow all possible characters in file names.
