New submission from Марк Коренберг <socketpair at gmail.com>:

When skiplinks is False (by default), it should as in current implementation, i.e. using stat().

if skiplinks is True, isidr() should use lstat() and same logick. 

If one will be implemented, os.walk() should be patched (see issue12970) to use this new isdir() with this new parameter instead of own logick in os.walk().
