[docs] [issue13498] os.makedirs exist_ok documentation is incorrect, as is some of the behavior

R. David Murray added the comment:

I *want* it to be the default, since I think that is the typical use case, but the existing default behavior means that such a backward incompatible change would not be acceptable for exactly the reason you state.  So yes, I want it as a new flag.  ("exist_really_ok", he says with tongue in cheek.)  I haven't given much thought to the API, but perhaps there could be a value for the umask that means "don't care"?
