I see no reason for the duplication, and I can point to one concrete bug affecting your re-implementation of `expanduser` that doesn't affect the original, i.e. that a `KeyError` is raised on Windows when `"USERNAME"` is not present in `os.environ`, whereas all similar cases raise `RuntimeError`. These sorts of issues sneak in when you duplicate code - better to stick with the battle-hardened version rather than an inherently risky rewrite.
