Unless your point is that we should _always_ traverse junctions? In which case 
we have a traverse 'upgrade' scenario (calls to lstat() become calls to stat() 
when we find out it's a junction).

Again, not sure why we'd want to hide the ability to manipulate the junction 
itself from Python users, except to emulate POSIX. And I'd imagine anyone using 
lstat() is doing it deliberately to manipulate the link and would prefer we 
didn't force them to add Windows-specific code that's even more complex.
