If you can find someone familiar with pathlib to champion the discussion it is more likely to happen and be productive... Getting the PEP up to date before the summit will also help. (I very much like the *idea* of pathlib and the bits I've seen / read through - but I haven't used it in anger yet so I don't feel qualified to champion it myself.)

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
-- the sqlite blessing
