    A 'Label' is a generalization of a filename.  Like filenames, labels
    consist of one or more directories followed by a basename.  However,
    the format used for a label need not be the same as that used by
    filenames.

    Each label class defines a separator character to take the place of
    the '/' character used by many file systems.
    
    All labels are relative labels; no label may begin with a separator
    character."""
