Nick's walkdir is "just" an improved walk - with a lot of added
functionality, like filtering etc.
But it's still based on os.walk(), which in turn uses listdir(), since
it's currently the only way to list the content of a directory. So in
short, it won't help for this issue.

To limit the memory usage, on would have to have to use an iterator
based on readdir().
