Like charconv, Microsoft would be happy to provide our filesystem implementation to libcxx. We've already done the time-consuming work of figuring out how to map the C++17 interface to the Windows API, and how to deal with Windows path syntax. And we have the same license. :-)

(We're still extremely busy finishing C++20, so while we can answer questions, we don't have enough spare capacity to drive development here.)
