It's a persuasive FAQ.
But (for example) I'm thinking I have no directories approaching 400 files. My biggest directory contains 89, and my average directory probably 15.
If I could save the additional bytes on the directory listing, I could read more bytes per disk spin-up, reducing disk usage and increasing my battery life.
