Good statement! Whether it's smaller/cleaner/easier/whatever is orthogonal
question. There's two pieces of code which do the same thing, and that's code
duplication, by definition.
Besides, the email you've responded to questioned the need to call
'normalize-raw-paths' at all. Do you have any comments on this?
