> The RaidNode currently iterates over the directory structure to figure out which files
to RAID. With millions of files, this can take a long time - especially if some files are
already RAIDed and the RaidNode needs to look at parity files / parity file HARs to determine
if the file needs to be RAIDed.
> The directory traversal is encapsulated inside the class DirectoryTraversal, which examines
one file at a time, using the caller's thread.
> My proposal is to make this multi-threaded as follows:
>  * use a pool of threads inside DirectoryTraversal
>  * The caller's thread is used to retrieve directories, and each new directory is assigned
to a thread in the pool. The worker thread examines all the files the directory.
>  * If there sub-directories, those are added back as workitems to the pool.
