You know, I've never noticed that Unix `which` automatically
abspathified the results (does it always? is it system-dependent? how
about Windows?).

That sounds overkill. If which() calls abspath, then there's no way to
get a non-absolute result. While if which() doesn't call abspath, the
caller is free to call abspath() if they want to ensure the result is
absolute.

Sounds like a no-brainer to me :-)
