adding a path module to stdlib

P: n/a
This may have been discussed ad nauseaum before, but every time I use
os.path manipulations I miss something like Jason Orrendorf's path.py
being in the standard library.

Ruby has it:
require 'pathname'
path = Pathname.new("/tmp/f.log")

What are we missing to make something similarly useful happen for
python?

That is a great library. I wrote a distutils setup.py for it to make it
easier to deploy on multiple systems I use. Installing path.py is so
much easier than using os.path.
