Christoph originally pushed for open coding this fallback decision
per-filesystem. I agree with you on the "none the above" options are
I don't recall him saying "open code". Rather, the sentiment was to
leave the fallback to the callers. That doesn't mean you can't wrap it
up in a convenience function.
