Oh, it looks like a read those two emails in the wrong order ;).

Anyway, I was going to suggest making the abstract base class
subscriptable too like this: PathABC[str] is a str-based path ABC, and
PathABC[bytes] a bytes-based one ;). I don't know if that should be
called a generic type or not, though.

The PEP already addresses this and says "no".
