The documentation should explain what a "common path prefix" is. It
can't be the path to a common parent directory, since the new function
doesn't allow mixing absolute and relative directories. As Phillip Eby
points out, it also doesn't account for case-insensitivity that some
file systems or operating systems implement, nor does it take into
account short file names on Windows.
