For Path.mkdir, exist_ok=True inhibits an error if a directory already exists.
You're proposing that for Path.is_dir, exist_ok=True should inhibit an error if
the directory does not exist.

A parameter to enable that behavior sounds reasonable to me, but it definitely
shouldn't have the name "exist_ok"; it does the opposite of what exist_ok does.

Good point, perhaps "missing_ok" then.
