Not sure whether we'd detect them.

And then there may be a mounted file system coming from a Unix
machine, not sure whether they'd show differences between absolute and
canonical pathes on Windows either.

Anyway, followsymlinks is true by default and I'd expect people to
only ever set it to false if they expected to see symlinks somewhere
in the tree - which most likely means a Unix only environment.
