ok yes it was easy to check - took a look: definitely "no" :)

it is perfectly reasonable to have the Visitor itself be
aware of the "order" of things, and to do "stuff" such as
push the node onto a stack that is *local* to the Visitor.

to reproduce what you did, i believe it is:

    def __call__(self, node):
        print("/".join(self.stack_of_stuff), node)
        yield node
        self.stack_of_stuff.pop(-1) # i think

as simple as that.

* no need for pathlib when "/".join() will do (complete overkill)
* the names are accumulated as the __call__ goes down the depth

basically if there is a temptation to add any parameters (like the
depth parameter), it should be resisted :)

the *visitor* function becomes responsible for *using* the fact
that it is being called.

the only good additional parameter, as jacob pointed out, would be
to have the node index.

    def __call__(self, node, node_idx):
    def Record(self, node, node_idx):
