I really look forward to PEP 428 acceptance :-)

Just a couple remarks:

>>> p = PureNTPath('c:/Downloads/pathlib.tar.gz')
>>> p.name
>>> p.basename
>>> p.suffix

I find the 'p.basename' name confusing: following POSIX conventions,
'basename' should be 'pathlib.tar.gz'. I don't have another 'name' to
propose for the stripped name, though.

> match() matches the path against a glob pattern:

I think it could be interesting to add an optional argument to
mitigate glob-based DoS. Whether this should be made default is left
as an exercise to the reader :-)
