How much effort would likely be involved in making sure > these paths were always absolute? Probably quite a bit, especially if they traverse symlinks and the like. Additionally, you'd need to track *current* state of $CWD, as the absolute path will change each time a chdir() happens, or if somebody does something like 'mv . ../../foo'. Particularly evil to track: cd foo/bar/baz ./myprog & cd ../ mv baz .. Where's myprog's ../../bin pointing now? And how would your post processor know that happened?
