#32789: Abstract get_category_by_path into get_term_by_path

 Having a function like `get_term_by_path` would be great as currently you
 have to fork the `get_category_by_path` function on your own to get a term
 by path for any other custom taxonomy.

 Would there be any opposition to a patch for this? The abstracted function
 wouldn't house the `_make_cat_compat` usage, which would remain in the
 backwards compatible `get_category_by_path` function after checking to see
 if $category is not null.
