Of course [duh!]

But it folds back to another issue... for a long time we've chattered that
holding the apr_file_t to the designated resource, opened before-or-during
the directory_walk and forever tested from that point on using it's handle
instead of it's name would be optimal.

If we finally s&*t and get off the pot to add this in 2.4 / 3.0, and this
was determined by core which -also- opened the target file (opening it
appropriately to enable sendfile, of course), then where does that leave
us?  Do we still seek this new api call?
