I know, the plan was to implement internal calls which would use Win32
functions (maybe GetVolumeInformation and SetVolumeLabel), then
implement POSIX-based substitutes in volumes.[hc]. As I said, the
extension of such changes still has to be better thought, but io.[hc]
is cluttered enough and there's a very high probability that more
functions end up in volumes.[hc].

Indeed. I, declare/swear/whatever, that I wrote the modifications I
posted, and I agree to license them under the X11 License as it
currently stands at http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php
without any additional terms. My only sources were (1) MSDN for the
.NET & Win32 API specs and (2) Linux man pages for the statvfs spec.
Should I add any kind of notice to volumes.[hc]?
