From TODO: Can rmtree initial paths be sanitised before diving into _rmtree(), in a way that would reduce platform-specific workarounds therein?

This is worth exploring, but I bet it will be a heavy lift. Apart from explicit testing for VMS, there is implicit OS checking in use of the constants _FORCE_WRITABLE and _NEED_STAT_CHECK. So I would not make this a high priority. Dealing with, e.g., the threads problem is, IMO, more important. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
Evaluated; requires too much change and raises risk so it will not be considered.
