I assume you mean /bin/pwd since many shells do have pwd built in
and can assume several behaviors, including "what users expect".

I've only read this depot thread quickly, but I still think I'd
prefer the @sys solution.  I come from an AFS background, though,
so I'm biased a bit.  

Peter, what's the current status of Coda these days?  I haven't
had time to play with it much, but where does it stand in terms of
stability and so forth?  Now that you've been deep in the project
for a while do you have a feel for an ETA when we can expect to
see nicely polished versions?  Obviously I'm mainly interested
in *Linux* versions...  :-)
