Applied and pushed.

This reminds me of the long-planned fork, e.g., s/fts_*/gfts_*/,
(all public symbols) in which I create new files named gfts.[ch].  Then,
someday, I can propose adding it to glibc.  Remember, proposing the
addition with new names is the only way to add the improved functions
to glibc, due to the API changes that make the gnulib version more robust.

A couple months ago I finally did most of the work, and have adapted
coreutils to use the new names (still all private for the moment).
Just need to find time to write ChangeLog entries, etc. and decide how
to handle maintenance of the resulting duplication.  I'm leaning toward
deriving gfts.c mechanically, at least initially, but that's messy.
There are many exceptions, and evaluating that takes time, too.
