What? Of course they are.

You do:
  open_directory(&baton, ...)

  add_directory(&baton, ...)

(arguments not exact; just for illustrative reasons)

You use one or the other. They are *not* used together. Each returns a
baton to use for child operations, and that baton should eventually be
passed to close_directory.

No. add_directory() creates and opens the directory. You do not call
open_directory() *unless* you first call close_directory() on the
baton returned by the open_directory.

What?! child_baton is an OUT parameter. You can't pass it to open_directory().

Well... we're talking about how the driver calls these things.

Yes, it would. Don't do that.
