Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org> added the comment:

+   Return a string representing the canonicalized pathname of *path*.

This sounds a bit strange to me; “Return a string representing the canonical version of *path*”.

Would it be a good idea to use the full docstring of posixpath.realpath to os.realpath and then just do “realpath = os.realpath” in posixpath?
