It doesn't entirely simplify libc, as it enlarges struct stat and (more importantly) makes struct stat tricky. This is a judgment call, but I would say we're better off in the long run with a simpler struct stat that ordinary programmers will understand easily, even if this complicates nftw implementation during the transition.
