And if you had even a glimmer of an understanding of what I actually
demonstrate above you'd know that the *BSD kernel contains more
filenames than will fit on a *BSD command line, which is 2**18 bytes and
even with an average of up to 16 chars in a filename that's still one
heck of a lot of files.  And that's in the kernel alone.
