  Description     : Better directory iterator that returns all file info the OS provides

Python module which provides a generator version of os.listdir() that also exposes the extra file information the operating system returns when you iterate a directory.
scandir also provides a much faster version of os.walk(), because it can use the extra file information exposed by the scandir() function.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Ben Hoyt (author of scandir) here: note that my scandir module isn't quite
ready for prime-time. It's usable, but still very much in early
development. It has a couple of known issues, and I also intend to complete
the fast C version. Not quite sure about a time-frame yet.

The new package won't reach Debian stable until at least 2 years, so I 
don't think this is a problem.
In the mean time, the speed improvement brought by your module can be 
useful in some workflows, like the one I have to deal with currently at 
work.
So I thought it was a good idea to propose a scandir package in Debian 
(and it could bring you more feedback).

Though, I will add a note about the "work-in-progress" status in the 
package description.
And if mentors think that the package should only be in experimental 
for now, that's fine with me too.

Cheers,
Nicolas
