That did cross my mind.

I know ~/ and ~who/ are expanded on UNIXy systems, and I read in
Python documentation that Python on Windows treats ~/ and ~who/ the
same way as on UNIXy systems, so the "begins with ~" test would work
on both systems.  But it is probably a better design to outsource
that knowledge to os.path.expanduser(), with the emphasis on "os."
part of that function.  That way, we do not even have to care about
