I've seen than many programs workaround the fact that musl lacks 
canonicalize_file_name(3) (which is a glibc extension).  Would you 
consider adding it to musl?  It relies on a glibc extension to 
realpath(3), although it could be implemented in terms of a standard 
realpath(3) (by looping), or even as a completely separate function.

We need it in a project, and will probably have to write our own version 
(unless we workaround it in a different way), since we can't rely on 
glibc.  Maybe you're interested in picking that code when we have it or 
write your own?
