Since this is going to be a new API, I would like to return the file type per directory entry where supported. I suggest to start with the Linux set of file types (DT_BLK, ..., DT_UNKNOWN), perhaps under different names, giving 'unknown' on systems which don't support this.

People traversing a directory tree can then skip the stat call if it's neither 'directory' nor 'unknown'.
