But otherwise, I think your suggestion is a very good one. The path
traversal function should simply return a linked list of dag nodes and
directory entry names. Since we build and use it as part of a single
trail, we don't need to worry about other processes changing parents
while we work, so the structure could be very simple. It would help
write functions like delete, which want to know that the entry
actually exists, but only affect the parent. And it provides a
natural basis for a cloning function.

That's superb thinking.
