I don't think so.

operation 1 : check basename
if same
    operation 2 : check full path
        if same

The only edge cases are when basename matches, but the full path does
not, which is covered anyway.

Personally, I think this is a brilliant idea on Xavier's part, so keep
up the good work.

Also, make sure to note what Dan mentioned about basename (we want to
try and be cross-platform here whenever possible)
