[New-bugs-announce] [issue41092] Report actual size from 'os.path.getsize'

New submission from Stephen Finucane <stephenfinucane at hotmail.com>:

The 'os.path.getsize' API returns the apparent size of the file at *path*, that is, the number of bytes the file reports itself as consuming. However, it's often useful to get the actual size of the file, or the size of file on disk. It would be helpful if one could get this same information from 'os.path.getsize'.
