i looked into it, as i missed the review. i also looked at the mailing list
archives but could not find a posting mentioning something about symlinks. are
there plans to support/handle them? it might be a good idea to change all the
calls to stat in the posix implementation to calls to lstat. and provide
functions like is_symlink and symlink_to (i implemented them for a small script
i wrote to test the lib)

or maybe one could led the user of the lib choose wich behaviour she wants
(defaulting to handling symlinks as files)

sorry if i only missed the messages in the archives and this has all been
