The discussion has ranged all over, so let me try to sum up:



Method or attribute?

   Method (implementations are of course free to pre-build and/or
   cache the value)


   no, rather a function in pathlib - ospath()

Add the method/attribute to str?

   Not necessary -- but if somebody else wants to do that part I
   am not opposed

Expand the C API to have something like PyObject_Path()?

   Yes - and if I understood correctly this function will do the
   same as pathlib.ospath(), just at the C level?  And what will
   its name be, exactly?
