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.
  At least one of the archive libraries can't cope with a destination being a Path but a source being a str, or something like that. zipfile can't (AFAICT) cope with Path objects on Python 3.5, but I worked around that by finding a Windows image at work that came with 3.7 already installed. :)
