Comment (by boonebgorges):

 @keesiemeijer Looks great! On closer inspection, I'm going to make a
 couple minor changes:

 1. It looks like, while it's not documented as such, the old
 `get_category_parents()` would accept a term object for `$term_id`. It's
 easy to add silent support for this in `get_term_parents_list()`, so let's
 do it.
 2. I'm adding a test to demonstrate the distant-to-nearest order issue
 you're solving with `array_reverse()`.
