Ah, thanks for the pointer, I hadn't seen that. Definitely looks like I
should "merge" Betterwalk with it. I'll see if I can spend some time on it
again soon. I'd love to see scandir/iterdir go into Python 3.4, and I'd be
very chuffed if iterdir_stat got in, because that's the one that can really
start speeding up operations like os.walk().
