  Ok, I'll implement (a) today for mount_* (and update the man pages). 
mount_msdos seems to do this already, though it uses getcwd instead of
realpath and gets the real path wrong if you are in / (mnt -> //mnt
instead of /mnt).

  Also, mount_msdos warns you when you enter a relative path.  Should it?
umount doesn't, so I'd think mount_* shouldn't either.
