If you look at the docs for shutil (, you will notice all over it says things like "path names given as strings". The question is whether that statement is true in the face of path-like objects? If it is true then the corresponding function in shutil should be updated to accept path-like objects. If it's false then the docs for the function should be updated.

This is a meta-issue to track working on the overall module (IOW separate PRs to fix things piecemeal is fine). Looks like the following functions need checking/updating:

- copyfile
- copymode
- copystat
- copy
- copy2
- copytree
- rmtree
- move
- disk_usage
- chown
- make_archive

[ unpack_archive is covered by]
