Summing sizes is fast. Carlos' argument is, by not needing to stat

That's my meaning :-)

Mind you, I'm not telling that this behaviour would convince me to
use FAT beyond an USB stick. ;-) I just want to contribute what I
see as a misunderstanding. ;-)

Absolutely.

Each filesystem has its design goals and compromises. And FAT has currently
some not very nice patches, like the addition for long names.
