Somewhere in this thread you were asking if is_file is really needed and that
you were mostly using !is_directory(). I don't see a problem with eliminating
is_file(). It is redundant and if you think it will cause confusion then I
would kill it. More generically, I suppose, the issue is whether the thing is a
'composite/container' or a 'leaf'. So you could go with something like
is_leaf() or is_container() but this just seems more obscure than is_directory()
to me.
