  Eh? I don't see anything wrong with this. Casting a `pathlib.Path` to `str` should just work! In fact, it is necessary for older Python 3, as there was a long tail of stdlib functions that didn't accept `pathlib.*` when those types were first introduced. I believe 3.7 was the first release that fixed them all.
