Files don't have depth, printing "infinity" would be wrong. The output
is empty on purpose. We _could_ invent a new depth keyword for this
case, if it's more convenient for parsing.

In this particular case there's overlap between 'status' and 'info', and
'status' returns more details in the first several columns of its output
than 'info' could.
