There are a bunch of different situations in which one would like to
have an absolute and canonical or a relative path from Git.  In many of
these cases, these values are already available from git rev-parse, but
some values only come in one form or another.

Many operating systems, such as macOS, lack a built-in realpath command
that can canonicalize paths properly, and additionally some programming
languages, like Go, currently do as well.  It's therefore helpful for us
to provide a generic way to request that a path is fully canonicalized
before using it.  Since users may wish for a relative path, we can
provide one of those as well.

Changes from v1:

* Add a function to handle missing trailing components when
  canonicalizing paths and use it.
* Improve commit messages.
* Fix broken && chain.
* Fix situation where relative paths are not relative.
