Also it's not called "lost+found" on all systems.  On Macs it's called
"Lost and Found", and my Android phone has a directory called
"LOST.DIR" although I'm not sure in the latter case if that's just an
ordinary trash folder or acts as a true lost+found in the fsck sense.
I think it's safer not to skip anything except "." and "..".
