store_open opens a store (i.e /dev/hd0, /dev/hda(Linux)) but the passing arg
must be a path.  store_type_open opens a store also but the arg passed must be a
store-typed name (i.e device:hd0 == /dev/hd0) store-type:name.  Store typed
names allow the Hurd to use basically anything as a store (file, gzip file,
device etc).

I can change to the patch not to do the cosmetic changes if you perfer.
