Should file-info return the size of a Directory?
The doc is not clear.
And on windows it does not.

just reports the contents of the C stat() or fstat() function argument structure, without any processing.
There are subtle differences how structure fields are used on different platforms but this manual page for Linux perhaps gives you an Idea: http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man2/stat.2.html
. To figure out the size of a directory, you would have to write a function yourself, using file-info
on all files in a directory.
