At least on GNU/Linux there is dirent.d_type backed by _DIRENT_HAVE_D_TYPE.
ext2/ext3 also support it by its optional (usually turned on) feature
'filetype'. (somehow I assume this is not new to you)

There would be needed some new 'GnomeVFSFileInfoOptions' bit for
gnome_vfs_get_file_info*() specifying we care only of: GnomeVFSFileType type
(or that we care only those filled in 'GnomeVFSFileInfoFields valid_fields'
on input).

This way also forbids using: GNOME_VFS_FILE_INFO_FORCE_SLOW_MIME_TYPE
