Remove perry's projects, per his request (on Google+).  Keep the dotdot

title="Fix .. semantics, once and for all"



In a file system with symlinks, the file system becomes a graph rather than a
tree. The meaning of .. and the current working directory becomes somewhat
ambiguous in such an environment.

Rob Pike implemented a neat way of fixing this for Plan 9. It is described in
<>.  The project is simply to
re-implement this for NetBSD.
