Find absolute base path of the project directory (after Meteor 0.6.5)

Until now we could get the absolute path of a file to open later as readStream with this code snippet:

var base = path.resolve('.');
var file = base + '/data/test.csv';


Since Meteor 0.6.5 the base path is pointing to

There is also the Assets API, which but can not give us back a path but only the read document. We but need a stream to process some bigger data files?


Since version 1.3, the not yet documented function


seems to be the best way to get the project path reliably.
