FWIW I agree with MvL: os.stat is one of those awkward customers
left over from the idea that Windows could be posix-compliant,
even though the relevant concepts don't actually map particularly
well. ISTM that anyone seriously wanting to determine whether
something's executable or not on Windows is going to have in
mind the precise semantics of a particular use-case and will
employ whatever API calls meet that need. I genuinely don't
believe there's any mileage in shoehorning more and more
corner-cases into os.stat on Windows.
