Thanks for the reply! I would prefer to call emsdk with an option to query 
the current path instead of symlinks (not sure how it works now, but 
symlinks and Windows command line tools and/or python on Windows was always 
a bit wonky).

Since I don't have a single global emscripten SDK installation, but instead 
several local installations side by side it would be important for me to 
get a relative path component (like in your example). Basically it would be 
fine if this works:

> emsdk path sdk-latest-64bit

In that case the path would be relative to the emsdk script, which imho 
makes the most sense? The really critical part is the "1.37.9" though.
