I was writing a test that could return True for "if not pathname" (, and included all values I know that could return a False value, but then I realised that the only value we should check against is an empty string... I don't think any other type is applicable.

I left None as a valid type, otherwise some other test ( fails.

Hm, that function is for internal use only, and our code always passes a string, so I’m not sure a type check is useful.
