It would probably be useful to provide samefile() on Path objects - basically doing the same thing as os.path.samefile().

I like the idea :-)

Here is the patch.

About doc string in patch:
1. s/same/the same/
2. "same" is usually used with "as", not "with":

Updated grammar according to Arfrever's review. Thanks!

Anyway, should samefile accepts only string? Or should it accept Path object as well?

Thanks for the patch! Some comments:

1. It should path objects as well as str objects.
2. I don't think you have to call resolve() here.
3. you should probably test what happens when one of the files doesn't exist
4. you need to update the documentation too
