ACK, to the general idea of adding a common routine. The original Linux
impl was kind of crazy. We could get a single portable impl for all
OS by using seek(), which is how libvirt does it in its storage code.

       fd = os.open(path, O_RDONLY)
       size = os.lseek(fd, 0, SEEK_END);
       os.close(fd)
       return size
