Version 2 of a patch series that adds some functions to the
string_list API.  This patch series applies to current master.  Thanks
for Junio for lots of great feedback.

The patch series "Clean up how fetch_pack() handles the heads list"
v3, which requires some of the new string_list functionality, works
unmodified on top of this version of the patch series.

Changes since v1:

* Expose a new function, string_list_append_nodup().  This is used in
  the implementation of string_list_split() and should be generally

* Straighten out the API for splitting strings (with help from Junio):

  * Implement two separate functions, one for splitting strings in
    place and a second for making copies while splitting a const

  * Redefine maxsplit=0 to mean "copy input string to output list as a
    single entry" for better consistency.

* Add tests for more of the new functionality and simplify some of the
  other tests.

* Various comment and documentation improvements.
