Pathlib offers a set of classes to handle filesystem paths.
It offers the following advantages over using string objects:
* No more cumbersome use of os and os.path functions. Everything
can be done easily through operators, attribute accesses, and method calls.
* Embodies the semantics of different path types. For example,
comparing Windows paths ignores casing.
* Well-defined semantics, eliminating any warts or ambiguities
(forward vs. backward slashes, etc.).
This is the Python 2 version of the package.
