Currently shutil.make_archive uses os.chdir, however there's no need for that. Everything that's done could be equally accomplished with path manipulation:

https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/master/Lib/shutil.py#L773-L779

We should switch to using path manipulation in order to make shutil.make_archive thread safe.

(Flag: This is probably a good bug for someone with Python skills interested in contributing to CPython!)
