the same is true for files: Deciding to iterate them line-wise is
relatively arbitrary, byte/char-wise would be equally intitive. So
something could be chosen.
But I think being explicit in the case of paths is really not that

Because this is ambiguous. Iterating can mean many different things:
1. Iterate characters of string representation of the path (str(path)).
2. Iterate path components (path.parts).
3. Open a file and iterate its lines (path.open()).
4. Iterate files in the directory (path.iterdir()).
