[neomutt-devel] MXAPI - Path functions

I'm still working on my 'accounts' code, but that's meant changing a lot
of other code. Most recently the Mailbox API.
Currently, the mailbox code knows a lot about the mailbox backends.
Also, some of the backends have references to $folder.
I've added four new functions to the Mailbox API:
// Does this mailbox type recognise this path?
int path_probe(const char *path, const struct stat *st);
// Canonicalise a mailbox path
int path_canon(char *buf, size_t buflen, const char *folder);
// Abbreviate a mailbox path
int path_pretty(char *buf, size_t buflen, const char *folder);
// Find the parent of a mailbox path
int path_parent(char *buf, size_t buflen);
This means that the backends are now responsible for managing their paths.
The common path manipulation code has been moved into `mutt/path.c`,
including new functions:
bool mutt_path_canon(char *buf, size_t buflen, const char *homedir);
bool mutt_path_pretty(char *buf, size_t buflen, const char *homedir);
bool mutt_path_abbr_folder(char *buf, size_t buflen, const char *folder);
These changes are another step closer to Account-local $folder config values.
