I don't see the benefit of marking it as inline. I expect this code to be
potentially expanded to provide callbacks into file system code for expansion
(something you brought up), marking it as inline might be a limitation.

I'd rather not clutter the headers with this code, but I am open to what the
maintainers think as well.
