All that info was from a directory's perspective. When doing history on
a directory you still get info about the files in it. When doing a
single file's history I get the same results as you.

BTW, I believe your file-based approach is better. Getting the current
directory layout from an SS dir, and then populating with the history of
current files is much easier than trying to retrace through the
directory's history.

I think you'll find the order and syntax the same as what I documented,
except for the difference in the first couple lines. But don't just
look at the things I listed for "file object's data". The "output lines
for a directory" don't only talk about directories; they include the
history of *files* in the directory. The division is there only because
of parsing difference in the first few lines, not because one is about
directories and the other files.
