Adding a new method to `pathlib.Path` class, `has` method is a method that can determine if the `Path` object has a specific file/dir or not.

Assume that we have a `Path` object for this `project/` directory:
and we want to know if the project directory has `` or not, after adding this method we will be able to do this:
from pathlib import Path

project_path = Path("./project")

if project_path.has(""):
    pass  # do something.

Isn't this just:
(project_path / "").exists()

I don't think .has would be any more efficient.

You're right, I'm sorry.
