The methods I want to add only supplement the existing interface. I will
submit a patch and you can take a look at it but they are essentially two
things I was trying to achieve:

- add a listing framework to the class, this is to support servlet container
- implement meta methods for Files, eg: getLastModified.

When I've done the formatting changes I'll submit another patch. It's fine
if you don't approve it because I can deliver it with Paperclips.
