Well look at it this way, you already have to use fstat to figure out if
a file is executable, readable, writable, a link, etc etc. Adding
another field or 2 to that structure wouldn't be the end of the world,
or if that's not a goer then make another system call for true
meta-data. Call it fdata or someat.
