PathLike behavior for File #174

With the recent changes to the DataFuture behavior and the File based model that we are moving to in general, we want to have File behave as closely to old behavior as possible so that there's least amount of code breakage. This is one such case:

Earlier we could do this since the result of a DataFuture was a string

f = open(DataFuture1.result(), 'r')

Now the result of a DataFuture is a File, which can't simply be passed to open:

f = open(File, 'r') <-- Fails

This can be fixed by making File follow the os.PathLike interface
