Show me a canonpath(3) or something which will give the simplest symbolic
i.e. a simplified full path given a relative or absolute path with all
redundancies resolved, without resolving away any symbolic paths.
I'm ``blindly'' using the only answer we have to a question: how can I get
an absolute (thus unique) path to an object in the filesystem.
I'm open to alternative ways of doing that, especially as I described
