pathlib up to 0.8 (on PyPI) has a different API - since there were so
many changes done as part of the release process.

When pathlib-in-the-stdlib stabilizes, I plan to release a pathlib 1.0
on PyPI that will integrate the PEP's API.

In the meantime, if you don't mind installing from VCS, you clone the
Mercurial repo (https://bitbucket.org/pitrou/pathlib/) and then
checkout branch "pep428".  It's 2.7-compatible.
