There was a lot of discussion a few years ago on the various 
"strategies" for dealing with errors when doing recursive operations. 
Files.walkFileTree was intended to let the user of the API decide how 
they want to handle errors, be it ignore, log, collect, fail, fail after 
some threshold, etc. So it does depend on whether you want to handle the 
errors. If you do, then it means overriding the visitFile method.
