[New-bugs-announce] [issue1829] Renaming platform path modules

New submission from Benjamin Peterson:

Currently, all the platform-specific path modules (ntpath, macpath, etc)
have normal module names. Since they are implementation details, they
should have a "_" prepended to their names as is the custom for private
objects. I doubt this would break much code: I've never written
witnessed any code outside of the os module that uses the modules.
