Hmmm, my first thought was that this could be implemented as
an extension using the register_open_hook feature (the same
way XML hooks in), but now I'm concerned that the existing
open_hook feature is called after the file is opened, so
this prevents the file from being opened with opendir()
instead of open().  I wonder if we need to push the open_hook
feature up a bit to support this...
