Here is the proposal to add System.FilePath to base. The System.FilePath module is located at

In particular I propose the addition of System.FilePath (a cross-platform FilePath manipulation library), System.FilePath.Windows (Windows paths on all OS's) and System.FilePath.Posix (Posix paths on all OS's). The Version_* stuff is not being proposed for addition.

Discussion for this issue seems to have stopped entirely, with no one saying that this library shouldn't be included in the set of libraries shipped with every compiler (and most people saying that is defined as base). Deadline of 7th December for anyone to raise any objections or further discussion.

Filepath is going to be shipped as a standalone package by all the implementations instead.
