I think it would be useful (even if not have this the default behaviour) to be able to preserve symlinks when doing module resolution.
This should function the same as in Node >= 6.3.0 with
--preserve-symlinks enabled. To quote docs on that:
The –preserve-symlinks command line flag instructs Node.js to use the symlink path for modules as opposed to the real path.
More info in Node.js docs.
