If the current behavior is kept, then os.path.join can't be
relied upon to return the 2nd (or 3rd+) argument if that
argument is an absolute path.  This is one of the things I
rely on os.path.join to do and would need to write my own
version.  Also, the behavior is quite different if the first
agument contains more than simply the drive letter.

I know this is a difficult issue and that is why I would
like to see it fixed in the standard library.  My question
is whether there is a rationale for the current behavior.
