I'm in the process of updating the LBYL support to use a "rmtree.avoids_symlink_attacks" function attribute rather than the "rmtree_is_safe" module level attribute.

As I said in the hmac.secure_compare function discussion, the words "safe" and "secure" are too vague to ever make for good API design. Much better to tell people exactly what they're safe against (rmtree_is_safe -> rmtree.avoids_symlink_attacks), or designed to be appropriate for (hmac.secure_compare -> hmac.compare_digest).
