Of the top of my head, I think it's "anything but a relative path".
real_path() is normally used to normalize paths before I compare them.
Writing a normalized path down is nice to avoid "../" but I don't
think it's strictly necessary. Well, it's also prettier when you have
to print the path out. Printing "/foo/bar/abc/../../xyz" is not nice.

Hmm.. looking back in add_worktree(), we also write "gitdir" with
real_path(). I think the problem here is that I should have
real_path()'d "path.buf" _before_ doing fspathcmp(). Maybe that's
where the confusion's from.
