I thought too that this belongs into a VFS module. But where would you
put that? readdir is a bit too lowlevel, there we don't have the stat
information available as easily, right? And then we have the other
'hide whatever' things in core code. They would have to go into a
module too, but for example the hide unreadable needs to call back
into the VFS. That quickly becomes messy. That's why I put it into
core in the end.

Thanks for pushing!
