For what it's worth, I agree with this reasoning.  <path>/file.php is  
easier to understand, and if not  more _intuitive_, then more  

Putting it another way:  When reading code, function().'string' could  
be anything.  function().'/string' strongly suggests "this is a path"  
before I look any farther.
