[Python-Dev] The path module (class) PEP

(1)  What is the advantage of module Path vs just turning os.path into a class?
(except that people already import from os.path, so I suppose it would
need to be os.Path)

(2)  It sounds like quite a few stdlib calls will be both deprecated
and wrapped.  Having a new stdlib module rely on deprecated features
leaves a bad taste.  Perhaps move the functionality to the Path class
and then forward from the current (about to be deprecated) modules?
