Allow absolute include paths in fcls
Currently you can't #include a fcl using a full absolute path. I think it is possible with a relative path from your pwd.
Obviously it's a bad idea to have any official/standard fcls configured this way, but it would be very useful during development/debugging.

As you state, this would be a bad idea in a production context: this is why the feature is as it currently is. It is not technically hard to implement, and can even be done specifically for the NOvA exec (
nova) and no other, but we would like to be sure that the NOvA collaboration is happy with the implications of implementing this, including the likelihood of bleedover into production FHiCL files or of the command line option making its way into production scripts, causing problems with the release.
We will discuss this at an upcoming stakeholders meeting.
