I think this renaming would be still losing clarity --- it loses the
information that this is the vsnprintf-like variant of git_path.

Do we actually have a convention that functions with git_ prefix
should be global?  If git_path were not global, would it have to be
renamed?  If git_vsnpath should be renamed to avoid mistaking it for
git's replacement of a hypothetical standard library vsnpath function,
shouldn't git_path, git_pathdup, etc be renamed for the same reason as

Yeah, independently of everything else, a strbuf variant sounds nice.
