Um, the one in the stdlib? ;)
Not everyone likes that one though. As things stand, you can easily substitute one of your own that's more to your liking. That won't be true if path objects get baked into the language syntax.
I'd rather submit bug reports and help improving a commonly used library than re-inventing the wheel. If the help is not wanted, that's another thing. But I consider working together important.
Furthermore, file paths are an essential part of programming even of todays operating systems. As are strings, numbers btw.
