Not quite: most ftp server can actually do a chdir() to set the current working
directory. The sftp protocol doesn't even have the concept of a "current working
directory", so our implementation uses realpath() to convert between the paths
that the user types (which may be relative) and absolute filesystem paths. 

This conversion isn't 100% necessary, and it may be possible to skip it in some
cases - e.g. when realpath() fails
