After reviewing the code, I agree with Martin v. Löwis that "stat.py" is a joke. Neither can we trust the numerical constants (each OS is free to choose a different meaning) neither the code in "filemode()" can cope with modes with more than a bit active (like DOORS).

I think all this code should be moved to a C module, able to access the underlining real constant definitions.

What do you think?.

Time to deprecate this and move the functionality into posix module, as suggested by Martin?.
