-0. What is "path addition"? Concatenation? Joining? Puzzled...

+0. Again, "path division" is a bit strange but at least I understand
    '/' is the separation symbol.

+1. That one I love best, even with the name "join". I used to use
    os.path.join() quite extensively so there is no chance I confuse that
    with str.join().
