True, but on the specific platform it would be faster to get a refence
than copy+move.

I guess with the new & (I don't know of any compilers that have
implemented it yet) feature we could have these overloads in path:

const string& string() const;
string string() const &&;

so when a temporary path object is returned from path::extension(), the
second overload is selected.
