Hartmut Holzgraefe:
you have to check for file existance with file_exists() before you
try to probe for its filetype

I think it'd be useful if the is_<type> functions in the FS category did that for the 
user, so moving to feature request.

I don't know enough about the underlying C stuff, but I don't think is_<type> checking 
the existence of the file/dir/whatever would be more expensive, would it?
