"I would agree if mkpath were a public function."
So It is better to define what a "public function" is. Any function in any module of any project, if it is indented to be used by other modules, it is public by definition.

If new people get involved in distutils development they will need to read all the code, line by line and every comment, because the old developers decided not to document the inner workings of its functions.

"Considering that dir_util is gone in distutils2, I see no benefit in editing the doc."
Well, I know nothing about this. However, if you tell me that distutils2 will replace distutils, I may agree with you and distutils just needs to be deprecated. Otherwise, I keep my opinion.
