It would be terrific if you gave us some clue about what is wrong in PEP355, so
that the next guy does not waste his time. For instance, I find PEP355
incredibly good for my own path manipulation (much cleaner and concise than the
awful os.path+os+shutil+stat mix), and I have trouble understanding what is
*so* wrong with it.

You said "it's an amalgam of unrelated functionality", but you didn't say what
exactly is "unrelated" for you.
