> Big dirs are really slow to read at once. 

Do you a proof for that claim? How big, and how really slow?

> for i in os.listdir()
>     use(i)

Also, how long does use(i) take, and what reduction (in percent)
can you gain from listdir iterating?

In short, I'm skeptical that there is an actual problem to be solved here.
