--- Comment #3 from alexxcons <alexxcons at xfce.org> ---
E.g. at work we have many backend systems which all mount the same mountpoint.
Below this mointpoint is a folder structure which, besides others, has
subfolders per backend-name.
So we introduced symlinks, such that we can ignore these mount-point specifics
and directly access the backend-specific data of the current backend.
In this case it would be preferrred to show the linked path, not the absolute
path. ( Just to show an example )

However yes, my use-case is not the default use-case. I think we should have
"resolve path for folder links" as opt-out, since I guess in most cases the
absolute path is preferred. 

Anyhow, currently I dont have time to work on this .. patches would be very
welcome !
