((Pathname#cleanpath is a purely lexical cleanup of a unix path, to remove
useless syntax and return an equivalent path. However, the current default
algorithm makes choices that can return semantically different paths.

((This patch sets the default algorithm to the safe alternative, guaranteeing the
return of a semantically identical path. The unsafe/aggressive algorithm
remains and can be enabled where appropriate.

I reject this issue because it is incompatible.
Also, I feel the conservative algorithm is not so useful because it cannot remove .. from foo/../bar.
