Actually, it is in libsvn_subr/target.c and it usually handles ../blah
dirs, (by sometime next week, when apr_realpath is checked in it always
will). You will be able to give an arbitrary path rep, and get the
absolute path, so 1 and 2 will work for mixed '~/', 'blah', '../blah',
'/blah' paths. Oh, and C:blah, C:\blah, \blah, and all the equivalents
for win32 and OS2.
