It that case, it might be more comfortable to go with something that
wraps it all (vs having our own wrappers for operations), I'm of
course talking about the "path" module:


It greatly increases the comfort of file manipulation and I use it for
most of my python scripting at work. The "license" is liberal enough
to just copy the module over to IPython source tree and call it BSD

Of course I'm not talking about porting already existing code over to
the path module, but for new code it's worth the shot.
