+1 for fixing this, but may I suggest another approach?
'minimal_fp' is a registry key created by 'utils.minimalpath'. Right now
'DirectoryView._dirpath' contains this registry key and I'd prefer to
keep it like that.
The keys generated by 'utils.minimalpath' currently look like this:
But we could change 'utils.minimalpath' to generate keys like these:
While it doesn't make sense to store
"full/path/to/MyPackage/skins/my_skin" in 'DirectoryView._dirpath'
"MyPackage/skins/my_skin" would work fine. All we need is a migration path.
We can use the same pattern as for GenericSetup's registerProfile:
Omitting 'Products/' would become deprecated. For backwards
compatibility DirectoryInformations are first looked up with a
"Products/" prefix and if no DirectoryInformation is registered for that
key the plain 'DirectoryView._dirpath' is looked up.
With this lookup order "MyPackage/skins/my_skin" is masked by
"Products/MyPackage/skins/my_skin", but I guess we can live without
support for that rare case until we remove the BBB code.
