I guess this is the magic in mkdir -p:

mkdir("expert", 0755)                   = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
chdir("expert")                         = 0
mkdir("tmp", 0755)                      = -1 EEXIST (File exists)

I'm not sure how I feel about that. I think we have more or less a policy in os & shutil not to change directories unless really necessary (like make_archive).
