My vote goes for showing it as NULL to non-superusers. If we remove the
path, that makes it pretty darn useless for admin tools - which was the
main reason it was added in the first place..
And "showing full path for superuser, just filename for non-superusers"
just seems to be way too ugly to consider :-)
