It's amusing that using fwalk and throwing away the last argument is faster than a handwritten implementation.  On the other hand, fwalk also uses a lot of file descriptors.  Users with processes which were already borderline on max file descriptors might not appreciate upgrading to find their os.walk calls suddenly failing.

Can you figure out why fwalk is faster, and apply that advantage to walk *without* consuming so many file descriptors?

No rush... :)
