:>     access the deleted directory entries.  This wouldn't be an 'as-of' style
:>     access... it would be accessing all the active and deleted directory
:>     entries regardless of when they became deleted.
:What if I deleted a directory and re-created it?

    The two directories (the old one and the new one) might be named the
    same, but they are physically different entities and will have different
    object ids.  So the deleted directory will still be accessible via its
    parent directory (and so on recursively through to the root).
