      See my mail from yesterday 17:54. This shows how it would work for win
      and unix using ..\xxd\xxd and ../xxd/xxd. I don't know the path
      separators for all the other OSes supported by vim. Is there support in
      VimL for this? I haven't found it.

      If we want this test to be really OS-independent, we would also have to
      replace sed and rm in the test.

      If this is wanted, I'll again invest some time in this.
