That was certainly one of the major objections to it. A filesystem path
object which didn't try to combine a half-dozen different modules into
methods on a single object, but instead focused on solving a few
specific problems with using raw strings as file paths would have a far
greater chance of acceptance.

Cheers,
Nick.
