A library for interacting with the filesystem

Project Description
Pathway is a module for interacting with the filesystem in a clean,
object-oriented manner. For example, instead of::

datafile = os.path.join(datapath, 'somedata.txt')
if os.path.exists(datafile)
os.rename(datafile, datafile + '.old')
fd = open(datafile, 'w')

You can write the much cleaner:

datadir =
if 'somedata.txt' in datadir:
datadir['somedata.txt'].rename('somedata.txt.old', overwrite=True)
datadir.create('somedata.txt', data)

The majority of filesystem operations have corresponding methods. The module
itself has no dependencies besides Python.
