Shannon <shannonjkeough at googlemail.com> added the comment:

I can see how this change would be backward incompatible, however the current behaviour seems inconsistent with the way pathlib functions otherwise. Within two lines of code, the same path object can be pointing to two completely different locations simply because it's being used as the src argument to create a symlimk. That's counter to my understanding of the whole point of pathlib.

With regard to relative_to, I've found this issue, which doesn't seem to have been touched since 2016. https://bugs.python.org/issue20012
I'm new here, what's the best way to bump an issue?
