Thanks, Ethan. I don't think that would be too much of an issue -- there is
only a small amount of OS X-specific code in scandir.py.

I also see Victor Stinner's just replied. I think he would make the ideal
maintainer if he's willing, as he helped me write the PEP and code and has
been very close to scandir for a long time.
