Ah, OK.  I've had it backwards then, based on the trunk vs v1.0 docs I
saw I thought path was new, but actually it is deprecated?

The aim here is to reduce user confusion between what they see in
Horizon vs what they see in Swift CLI list output.  One thought was to
show them in the list output with a '/' suffix similar to what tar
does for directories.  Or is changing Horizon to not create the
directory markers the Right Thing?  Or both?
