Update path(s) tasks, add tests, extract pluralize to strutil
Review Request #2892 — Created Sept. 25, 2015 and submitted

The path / paths tasks were untested, used older idioms and had behavior that didn't reflect their documentation. This updates them so that the print out the paths rather than just have a count. It switches to using the console_output method instead of execute It updates the algorithm used to cover cases more effectively, even in the face of cycles. It also extracts pluralize from reporting and moves it to strutil and adds tests for it.
Wrote test suite, which uncovered weird behavior in the existing impl. Made it pass.

Follow up tasks
add to -> from path lookup
move path lookup helper to build_graph
* maybe deprecate 'path' since it's redundant
