Can I ask what sort of backwards-compatibility guarantees Python provides for these cases? In the case of using a Path object as a context manager, I think we can say:

- It's easy to do - there's no need to call any underscore-prefixed methods for example
- It's undocumented
- It's pretty hard to determine existing usage statically - grepping for `with p:` is years of work.
