I started working on a patch for this, but the more I think about it the less I am convinced it is wanted.

The issue requests that os.listdir('') be equal to os.listdir('.')

The given example of os.path.join doesn't follow this:

>>> os.path.join('','aaa')
'aaa'
>>> os.path.join('.','aaa')
'.\\aaa'

This makes sense: prepending an empty path should be a no-op, while prepending the current directory has a different meaning.

It seems consistent in this case that listing an empty path and listing the current directory should have different meanings.

Is there any other traction/use case for this change?
