STINNER Victor added the comment:

> If you want to avoid ineffective because its meaning is subtle (a reasonable request), the correct replacement would be "modifying dirnames has no effect on the behavior of the walk", which is wordier but clearer.

I prefer the new sentence, it's more explicit. Maybe I pushed the change too fast.

@David: are you ok with the change?
