Forwarding to python-dev.

Does everybody agree that the following behavior is not a regression, but a
feature of os.path.split()?

Python 3:
>>> import os.path as osp
>>> osp.split('//hostname/foo/')
('//hostname/foo/', '')

Python 2:
>>> osp.split('//hostname/foo/')
('//hostname/foo', '')

But Python 3 again:
>>> osp.split('//hostname/foo/bar/')
('//hostname/foo/bar', '')
