    For the case Peter cites, yes, it does add clutter to the pathname to
    say "..metas" (actually, it is "...." now in the current reiser4, not
    "..metas"). This is because you aren't looking for metafile
    information, you are looking for a subset and describing the subset, and
    that just requires a file-directory plugin that can handle the name of
    that subset and parse the file to find it.
