File-Path-Expand (1.02)

I hate these "this module is misnamed" reviews, but alas...
it's a wrapper for User::pwent that checks for $HOME beforehand. I'm not sure how portable it is: it probably should make use of File::HomeDir instead.

(I would point out that Cwd's "abs_path" does the same thing, but it's buggy: works for "~user" but not "~".)
