There's a risk to that solution, though. A longstanding bug (2489632) in FSPathMakeRef (and thus with a few other routines that apparently use it) whereby symlinks are silently resolved. Depending on your needs, that may be a show-stopper.

Does FSPathMakeRefWithOptions with kFSPathMakeRefDoNotFollowLeafSymlink take care of that?
