Right now, to know whether a Path is relative to another one, you have to call Path.relative_to(), catch ValueError, and act in consequence.

It would be nice to have a Path.is_relative_to() that does the equivalent for you and returns True/False.

This is probably a good easy issue for a beginner contributor.

Hi, Antoine, pls review this PR if you have free time.
Looks is_relative_to only catch valueError is good enough.
