Spiro and path operations fails

Bug Description

When using Spiro Splines and a path operation (I haven't tried them all, but those I have tried all have the same problem), Inkscape uses the "underlying" bezier curve instead of converting the object to a non-LPE version (Object to path, ctrl+shift+c).

Steps to reproduce:

1. Make two Spiro splines where this and the underlying bezier curve are not equal.
2. Use a path operation.

or try my attached file.

Use Object to path (ctrl+shift+c) on all objects before using path operations.

The attached patch applies live path effects prior to performing boolean operations to fix the bug.

Why the check
   if (SP_IS_PATH(l->data) && SP_SHAPE(l->data)->_curve_before_lpe) {
instead of only checking for SP_IS_LPE_ITEM?

I didn't know SP_IS_LPE_ITEM exisited, else I would have used it. I've attached a revised patch.

Please review (the revision didn't merge without conflicts into 0.48.x).
