i've heard about this MSLU, but don't known that it is supported in
Win32 package. so, we need to define only:

in this case, i propose the following plan - write and test this
library and only then write patch for the base. i think that
debugging of independent library should be easier than working
directly with base

source modules for this library can be extracted from Streams (File,
MappedFile) and base (System.Directory.*, System.Posix.Internals)

if you are student, you can apply for SoC ticket dedicated to this work:
