Chiming in here: Sphinx's testing framework does include a feature that allows easily read/write files into/from text/bytes directly from path-like objects. There is thus a demand out there. If this feature were to make it into stdlib, it would be loved at least by Sphinx testers and sphinx extension module testers.

Current implementation in Sphinx:

Discussion to move to pathlib on Sphinx tracker:

Some code examples of how this is typically used in Sphinx:
