Well, I split it out from a function that handles multiple path components, mostly so that I could leverage existing work (and not have to worry about getting it wrong). It wasn't explicitly intended that it support multiple components, since I don't require that for my implementation, but I could see future users taking advantage of that. I think "ends_with_path_components" might be the way forward, unless you think something else would be better. -- brian m. carlson: Houston, Texas, US OpenPGP: https://keybase.io/bk2204
