It shouldn't cause any issues accessing files, this is really just about
equals, sorting, and path matching. I think it requires a bit of thought
as to whether to change this because Apple's JDK6 and older releases
does not appear to have changed File#equals.
In any case, just to put some context on Sherman's changes, this really
just another installation of the port to Mac as this area was not
completely ported. In that context then the changes to fix the
normalization issues are very welcome. Other missing pieces in this area
included the watch service, and also a FileTypeDetector implementation.
