Py3K - PEP 355

So, we still don't get object oriented path manipulation in Py3K

$ python3
Python 3.1.1+ (r311:74480, Nov  2 2009, 14:49:22) 
[GCC 4.4.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import path
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named path

Is there still hope?
OK. Pronouncement: PEP 355 is dead. The authors (or the PEP editor)
can update the PEP.

I'm looking forward to a new PEP.

PEP 355 died out years ago, but the reference implementation still exists, and IMHO is still garbage.  Will there ever be another attempt at a stdlib PathClass?
