The two-minute tutorial section of the filesystem documentation calls
leaf() from a dereferenced directory_iterator. The reference
documentation shows that dereferencing a directory_iterator yields a
directory_entry but the reference documentation for directory_entry
shows no leaf member. Eventually I had to track it down in the source
code and found out that leaf does exist but is deprecated and not

It is probably bad to have the introduction to a library use
undocumented functions.
