Thank you thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for and solves my
problem nicely. Since I may have a mix of aliases and normal files, this
function makes it easy to tell if the file is an alias as well as providing
the valid reference to the actual file.

This was one of the multitude of Rev functions I didn't even know existed.
