I don't need to know if it's a file, that's std.file's business. I'm talking
strictly about string processing.

I want to reject paths that are clearly directories and not files. In other
words, *accept* paths which are valid file paths. I know well that a file can
be extensionless.

assert(path.endsWith(dirSeparator)) is what I want (but a call to isValidPath
beforehand is also required). I think it's standard enough to be included as a
"isValidFilePath" function.


Consider a build system where the user can specify a path to an output file,
even if that path or file might not exist:

build --output=C:\dir\name   <- pass
build --output=C:\dir\name\  <- reject this

I can't use isValidFilename here, it will reject both of these cases because it
only works on "name" and "name.ext" variants, if it sees any separators it
rejects it.
