This was not a problem for me for the Safari 3.X series (i.e. the same
'failure' code was being used for both plaforms), but is now definitely a
problem for the Safari 4.X developer preview. Safari/Windows is just returning
a 404, whether the directory exists or not (I'm using this for 'directory
existence detection').

Here is what I would propose (and which should obviously work cross-platform):

1. If the file:// URL points to a file and the file exists, the status code
should return 200. The responseText/responseXML may very well be empty or null
(meaning no content). If the file doesn't exist, it returns 404.

2. If the file://URL points to a directory and the directory exists (even if it
has no files within it), the status code should return 200. If the directory
doesn't exist, it returns 404.
