Often I have the contents to be written in a file at a given path that
I know as well. I recently tried to find a function in stdlib to do
that and to my surprise this is what I found :

 - Such function exists
 - It's `distutils.file_util.write_file`

IMO the last place where people'd look for such a function is inside
`distutils` package. Besides I reviewed modules listed under `File and
directory access` category in `Library Reference` and found nothing
even similar.

The idea is to provide a a similar function in `shutils` module
