would do it, but ...
This rather a side effect than anything else, so I recommend to avoid it.
Pliant is intended to work only with absolute path, so what you should do
is write a function that returns the OS current directory as a valid Pliant
path, then use it as the 'file_list' argument.
Basically, Pliant currently does not translate the Unix current directory
notion, because I find it evil (shell related).
