Or even better, that you could do p"filename.txt", which would give you a Path string object.
That would tie Path objects deeply into the parser and compiler, which I'm not sure is a good idea.
Also, it would be stretching the string-prefix concept considerably. Currently, the prefixes just represent different ways of specifying a string -- the end result is still always an instance of str. In this proposal, it would be a different type of object with greatly different behaviour.
Not sure whether I feel positively or negatively about this, so +0j.
