get_display_path and get_canonical_path

foobar2000_io::filesystem has two functions, get_canonical_path and get_display_path. My question is whether must be possible to get canonical path from display path in custom filesystem implementation?

In other words:
Code: [Select]
get_canonical_path(path1, path2);
get_display_path(path2, path3);
get_canonical_path(path3, path4);

Should path4 always be equal to path2? Or last line is not correct and may but does not have to work at all?
