Minor naming issue:

create_directories is not a good name - it's misleading.
It's easy to confuse with create_directory (first 15 chars);
and it doesn't take a list of paths and create them all as one might think,
in fact it might not create anything.

establish_directory says better what the function does.

Minor point, as said (and an old one, thinks I just missed filesystem V1 release posting this).

Really appreciate the new simplified version, I'll probably use it more often.
