I'm interested, in the sense that I would have a use for a way of
doing open() on an arbitrary "path-like" thingy, and getting back a
relatively full-featured file-like object, as efficiently as
possible. (ie, preferably without grabbing the whole contents of the
file into memory and using cStringIO :-))
Most of the rest of the path-manipulation functions are of little
interest to me, personally.
I would be willing to help in coding the parts I have a use for, but I
have limited time.
