> Unless you're specifically testing single steps through symlink chains, you probably want to just use realpath anyway.

I do see now the references to `realpath` in the docs... and I think that satisfies the need I described above. It doesn't supply the `f`, but it provides a mechanism to resolve the ultimate file. As you say, there's still no regular solution for resolving intermediate links in a chain of symlinks with user-friendly names, but it seems like a much less severe limitation (platform variation).

I'll see if `realpath` satisfies the test suite needs for path pie.
