AFAICT, it only doesn't fail if the pathname given may be created,
i.e. if all but the last component exist (and there are no trailing
slashes, per POSIX).

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.		-- Coywolf Qi Hunt
