Unless your point is that we should _always_ traverse junctions? In which case we have a traverse 'upgrade' scenario (calls to lstat() become calls to stat() when we find out it's a junction).

Again, not sure why we'd want to hide the ability to manipulate the junction itself from Python users, except to emulate POSIX. And I'd imagine anyone using lstat() is doing it deliberately to manipulate the link and would prefer we didn't force them to add Windows-specific code that's even more complex.
