My change leads no extra cost, rather reduce the cost of
conversion because atoi simply invokes strtol.

Anyway, this change isn't so important to me. You may reject it.
Another change in which strcasecmp is replaced with strcmp in
sort_by_native_name is important.

The current implementation of sort_by_native_name compares posix
paths. Obviously, this is a bug, nevertheless it cause no
serious problem till now. In the first place, lexical order of
the entries isn't important. The entries are sorted so that more
descriptive one is applied in path conversion. What is important
is its length. So my change cause no serious problem.
