Yes, this issue is out of date. shutil._rmtree_isdir() and shutil._rmtree_islink() were added to handle mount points (i.e. junctions) as if they're symlinks. 

More generally, junctions and symlinks are what the platform refers to as name-surrogate reparse points. This category isn't handled generically by rmtree(). It wouldn't be hard to generalize the implementation, but that's something for a new issue.
