I have wished for base.mkdir("subdir") too, but the addition to pathlib would be backwards incompatible for people that give the mode argument as a positional argument.
I wonder if it is still possible to rename pathlib attributes (and keep the old ones as deprecated aliases for a while), now that the adoption of pathlib is still limited.
pathlib is still provisional (PEP 411), thus any changes can be made if deemed necessary, including backward incompatible changes. The bar for such changes is described by PEP 411 as "quite high", but they can occur.
