pathlib lets you do operations on paths. It also gives you a string
representation of the path that's expected to designate that path when
talking to operating system APIs. It doesn't give you the possibility to
store other semantic variations ("whether a new directory level must be
created"); that's up to you to add those.
(similarly, it doesn't have separate classes to represent "a file", "a
directory", "a non-existing file", etc.)
