In contrast to "opendir", streamWrapper::dir_opendir does not return a handle but a bool. This is bad IMHO, because within a call of dir_readdir there seems to be no way to differentiate which directory is currently being read in case multiple dir_opendir-calls are running concurrently.

Sorry. This is bogus. Found this out myself: streamWrapper is being called as a separate object instance for each running opendir. Should perhaps be documented a bit more. Documentation on all this is really sparse at the moment.
