pathlib seems to be the preferred method for working with system paths in Python 3. We've started using it in place of `os.path` in our office recently and really like it. However, we've run into problems with using it with arcpy. For example:
workspace = pathlib.Path('C:\some path') \ 'anotherfolder' \ 'connection.sde'
Throws this error: "RuntimeError: Object: Error in accessing environment <workspace>"
To work around this, we end up wrapping all of our Path object with str(). For example:
workspace = str(pathlib.Path('C:\some path') \ 'anotherfolder' \ 'connection.sde')
It would be great if arcpy (Pro version) handled these Path objects natively!
