True for now.  But suppose we introduce into Emacs support for 
Cygwin-style symlinks some day--are we supposed to go through all the 
primitives and invent Windows-specific code to handle that?

I think computing a simulated inode for a directory is much simpler, and 
will work for a broader class of potential changes in the underlying 
filesystem and in Emacs.  The code already exists, it just needs to be 
activated by removing the #if 0 conditional.  I fail to understand why 
are we still arguing...
