Just as a matter of information.... The seekdir/telldir interface was
debated recently by the Austin Group.  The Open Group wanted to
include it as part of the XSI extension to 1003.1-200x; other people
were strongly opposed to its inclusion.  I believe the final decision
was that it seekdir/telldir would not be included, because it is
impossible to implement over certain filesystems (e.g., SGI's XFS,
which uses a radically different data structure for directories).
