Indeed, as I remember it there are people using commonprefix as a string function in situations having nothing to do with os paths.

I'm changing the title to reflect the fact that this is really a feature request for a new function.  IMO it is a reasonable feature request.  Finding a name for it ought to be an interesting exercise.

I think that this should only be accepted if there is also a windows implementation.
