Personally, I'd like to see the ability to open directories preserved. There
may be good reasons to avoid writing to a directory. If so, perhaps that
could be prevented.
Along the same line, I notice that less/more will no longer open a directory:
# less -f .
. is a directory
contrary to what its man page says:
-f or --force
Forces non-regular files to be opened. (A non-regular file is a directory or
a device special file.)
