  Sure.  The larger issue is that I tested it on OSX, and scandir() returns *duplicates*.  i.e. it seems to randomly return the same file multiple times.  So that's useless.

  Quite frankly, it's not a lot more code to just readdir() the entire directory, and put the files into an ordered heap.  The "read file" code can then just pop entries from the heap.
