+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.
