Yeah, but that's sort of my point: At least from what (I understand of
what) the book says (I don't know if that's still like that), the
current implementation is incapable of returning more than one
reference to the same inode, because it uses the name stored in the
inode and there's currently only one.

But nevermind that, I was just raising a topic on one hurdle that
could be unnoticed so far :)
