of course, you're right.

I think 'size' should be enough. For directories it it 0 as the docs
will indicate. I don't think that people would expect 'size' to be the
number of files inside a folder - it would then be called 'children' or
something like that.
And since there's also a flag indicating whether the entry is for a file
or folder, a value of 0 won't be confusing.

I can't really comment on this. I'm not the one who uses the CL client
very often, and usually only for some basic commands or to test
something. Which means I better leave that discussion up to others
better suited than me.

But if there's nothing more (apart from the command line UI) holding
this patch back, I would really appreciate it if someone could commit
it. I really need the size information here for some drag-n-drop
operations inside the shell.
