Is the clean solution to re-implement EVERYTHING in the stdlib that
involves a path in a new, fancy pathlib way?

If we were starting from scratch, I _might_ like that idea, but we're not
starting from scratch. And that would cement in pathlib itself, leaving no
room for other path implementations. kind of like how the pre-__Index__
python cemented in python integers as the only objects once could use to
index a sequence.
