Isn't this redundant?

>>> Path.cwd()

Probably this is just personal taste but I'd prefer the more explicit:

>>> Path(os.getcwd())

I understand all the os.* replication (Path.rename, Path.stat etc.) but all
these methods assume you're dealing with an instantiated Path instance
whereas Path.cwd is the only one which doesn't.
Not a big deal anyway, it just catched my eye because it's different.
Other than that the module looks absolutely awesome and a big improvement
over os.path!
