    dir_iterator: new API for iterating over a directory tree · 0fe5043d
    Michael Haggerty authored
    The iterator interface is modeled on that for references, though no
    vtable is necessary because there is (so far?) only one type of
    dir_iterator.
    
    There are obviously a lot of features that could easily be added to this
    class:
    
    * Skip/include directory paths in the iteration
    * Shallow/deep iteration
    * Letting the caller decide which subdirectories to recurse into (e.g.,
      via a dir_iterator_advance_into() function)
    * Option to iterate in sorted order
    * Option to iterate over directory paths before vs. after their contents
    
    But these are not needed for the current patch series, so I refrain.
