I tried that one before, and it was unusable (it confused files with
directories, and would often return binary inode data when it thought it was
accessing a file and it was actually a directory,  and symlinks were

But it looks to have improved significantly  - even if symlinks aren't
handled, they should at least be gracefully ignored now(according to the
doco anyway).
