there was a way to return the file names relative to the given directory
(which wouldn't make much sense if multiple dirs are given, though).

I considered it, even if just for performance optimization, but having multiple roots makes it a problem.

We should deprecate the "multiple roots" thing, actually, but external roots will stay with us, I think (they have their uses). Some larger rework of the API (and of external roots' representation) might make it viable, though.
