Well, if no realpath, then (1) and (2) are the same, so ...

} 1 change the meaning of :A so that it is equivalent to realpath(3)
} where it exists and to :a on systems without realpath(3)

} 3 new modifier that calls realpath(3) with fallback to :a
... there's no useful distinction between your #2 and #3.
} if i could have a pony then the most favorable solution would be
} 0 change the meaning of :A so that it is always equivalent to
} realpath(3), using an implementation bundled with Zsh where
Noted. Somewhat more likely would be a new modifier that implements
realpath by stealing code from somewhere that is licensing-compatible.
