((*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.
