To clarify: the difference between "traverse" and "read (contents)"
permisions for directories is quite important. If you're allowed to
traverse, but not read, you have to know the path of a subordinate
object in order to be able to access it, modulo the object's own
permissions. In other words, you cannot discover the names of
subordinate objects by reading the directory contents.
