:  - Remove an unnecessary call to stat(). We can just use lstat before
:    checking the file. This saves calling both stat() and lstat().

    That changes the functionality a bit.    What if the sourcedir path
    is a symlinking pointing to a directory rather then the directory
    itself?  That is perfectly acceptable but this change will turn it into
    an error from what I can tell.
