How religious are you about the idea of having to have BOTH a lookup2()
that contains all the information necessary to create a directory if the
name is available, AND a subsequent "create directory" call?  Because once
you remove the word "intent" from the description, that looks even more

It is the relationship between those two (sometimes 3) redundant calls that
is the real substance in what otherwise appears to be just a naming issue.
