Yes, but svn_opt_parse_path() always returns canonicalized paths, even though
its documentation in svn_path.h doesn't say so.

Do you think most users of svn_opt_parse_path() know they can pass in
uncanonicalized and always get back canonicalized paths? If not, then I can
relax the code.

I may have to audit all uses of svn_opt_parse_path() and ensure that the result
is passed through one of the canonicalization functions.
