Ok, now I realize that *is* the actual design of pushd/popd. It just
contradicts with the docstring:

"""Place the current dir on stack and change directory."""

Because it didn't place the current dir on stack - it changed the
directory, then pushed the new directory on stack.

Is it ok if I fix this? I.e. should we remain "bug compatible", or
implement it the way pushd/popd is conventionally done?
