IMO, it's not really a compromise.  It's all about giving all the data
to the frontend, so it can do whatever it pleases.

 - the file path as recorded in the compilation.  This is useful to have
   so the user can identify issues with fullpath mappings.
 - the file path gdb thinks that maps to in the filesystem, using the current
   settings of "directory/set directories/etc".

I'd even argue that the backtrace path in question should not change the "file"
field in MI, but instead it would add a new field to the output, if that's
also useful for MI.
