It is very explicit and hard to get it wrong.
+1 ...and it's not _that_ long a name. This would be a provisional module, so we could try the name on for size <wink> or hide it behind an operator later.
Or, precisely, since it's provisional, we needn't *wait* before we provide an operator. Any stdlib module API can be augmented; what provisional modules allow in addition to that is to modify or remove existing APIs.
So we can, say, enable Path.__truediv__ and wait for people to complain about it.
By the way, it's not new to have dual operator / method APIs. For example set.union and set.__or__; list.extend and list.__iadd__; etc.
