I plan to do another reroll based off Ævar's feedback (thanks!), let's
hold off on merging until then?

Separately, I'd also prefer to hear from Peff regarding my reading of
37a95862c6 (alternates: re-allow relative paths from environment,
2016-11-07) and whether we want to continue 'supporting' broken paths in
the environment. I doubt it, but since he initially suggested it in his
fixup patch [1], his opinon would be reassuring :)
