I wanted to fix it, but every time I prepare a patch, it breaks
I had the test-case I posted working, but then it would fail when
doing fake-super (b/c the %stat gets set in two places then).
How is this whole thing supposed to work? It seems to be doing some
strange mix of pre- and post-order recursion. Wouldn't it be simpler
to just to strict post-order ? ie: set/mkdir the directory 07xx,
rsync all the contents, and then set_file_attrs at the end? Then
there's no worry about touching up the mtime/permissions/etc. Also,
the way it is now the file attributes get touched repeatedly, slowing
it down by a non-negligible amount.
