Tommorow is a big grep, by the way, for all the places we tested finfo->protection
as our guiding star that the file exists.  This is a -very- lousy test on any system 
that doesn't implement the one true unix security schema.  It doesn't even work on 
several unix-like implementations that can have another group or user permission 
granting access while the 'official' three perms are zero.
