Due to a python-ideas discussion about reducing boilerplate for __file__-relative path calculations, I was running "./python -X importtime -S -c 'import pathlib'" and noticed three potential candidates where it may be worthwhile deferring the imports until the modules are actually needed:

- re (used in _WildcardSelector)
- fnmatch (used in PurePath.match and _WildcardSelector)
- urllib.parse (used in PurePath.as_uri, by way of self._flavour.make_uri)

Using an optimised Python 3.7 on an SSD with warm disk caches, commenting out those 3 imports reduced my typical import times for pathlib from 12-13 ms to 7-8 ms)
