But that does neither contradict Carlos' point nor does it address his

OIC, I had read Carlos' comment as stating that it's easy and fast to do
that enumeration, because you just have to sum the size of the files - I
wasn't aware that files needed to have stat() called against them on some
filesystems in order to get the size.
