If developers will agree, i can add it to the cvs.

Hmm, my initial thought on this is that instead of creating a new specialized file check-service and "duplicate" code, another option is to, during parse-time, issue an error when if-checks that is not supported by the concrete file is used. Since there are many different files on Unix we may end up with lots of new specialized statements if we start. We already have three specialized statements for file; directory, device and file which should suffice IMHO. The end-functionality should be the same and we keep the name-space in the control file small.
