I based my speculation on some observations I had made on some of my own 
systems when I implemented dir_index. It so happens that, on that system 
at least, a "find /foo -print" returns the filenames in sorted order. 
Unfortunately, it isn't true on another system that I just checked. So now 
I will go and stand in the corner :(
