This is little different from the approach taken by Python's os.walk, 
which lazily yields the contents of a directory tree as it traverses it. 
  I'm a little unclear on why one appears good in your eyes, while the 
other is not, beyond perhaps the depth/breadth knob and differences in 
amount of documentation.  Maybe you could expand on that a bit?
