.. method:: Path.is_mount()

Return ``True`` if the path is a :dfn:`mount point`: a point in a
file system where a different file system has been mounted. On POSIX, the
function checks whether *path*'s parent, :file:`path/..`, is on a different
device than *path*, or whether :file:`path/..` and *path* point to the same
i-node on the same device --- this should detect mount points for all Unix
and POSIX variants. Not implemented on Windows.

.. versionadded:: 3.7

.. method:: Path.is_symlink()

Return ``True`` if the path points to a symbolic link, ``False`` otherwise.
