1) It's unusual to a function that returns information on a path not to return
an error if the path doesn't exist, so if that's how we want it to behave its
doc string should explicitly mention it.

2) I thought it WAS possible to have locks on non-existent paths (called
"reserving" a path). Even if our client doesn't allow creating such a lock,
others might, so we should still look for them.
