What about creating tools.remove(<path|parttern>) instead?

tools.remove(os.path.join("foo", "bar", "baz.txt"))

@uilianries that for sure would be breaking, as for some file-systems / (slash) and * (asterisk) are valid characters that could be a part of the file name. in this case, it's non obvious if you're specifying character as a part of the file name, or as an wildcard/mask.

Agree with @memsharded, removed_files as relative to the given directory would be better IMO
