enabledCssSnippets returns removed snippets

Steps to reproduce

In the sandbox vault, create and enable a snippet called test.css. Now app.vault.config.enabledCssSnippets will return ['test']. Then delete test.css (without disabling it first) and restart Obsidian. app.vault.config.enabledCssSnippets still returns ['test'].

Expected result

app.vault.config.enabledCssSnippets should not return non-exist snippets.

Actual result

app.vault.config.enabledCssSnippets returns previously-registered non-exist snippets.

Going to mark this as #wontfix since it’s working as designed.

The reason we don’t prune this list is that a deleted snippet could just be a file that hasn’t been downloaded by a sync service yet.

If you’re accessing enabledCssSnippets, I suggest treating it like raw user input and validate that the files exist before using them.
