What I observe with the current code is typically

         A dir
         A dir/file
         A dir/subdir
         A dir/subdir/file
         A dir/another_file

It's true that once subdir is added it gets all its contents before
any more items are added to dir, however that happens during the dir
update so "pending" log files will accumulate all the way down the
heirarchy. Is that going to be a problem? Does the dir/subdir
creation get accumulated in the dir log file? Can dir/subdir sensibly
have a log file before the dir log file has been run?
