Actually, I was waiting for comments. Maybe someone has another idea. Reading
the directory in memory would mean that programs using opendir() would always
include the heap module, *and* use space for the linked list, which is quite
an overhead. If there is no other solution, I would prefer to just document it
and let the programmer handle the problem. This way, only programs that need
to open files while reading from the directory would need to build a directory
list on the heap. Maybe the library could offer a wrapper module for this
