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.
