[Gdal-dev] GDALOpenInfo question

In GDALOpenInfo::GDALOpenInfo(const char * pszFilenameIn, GDALAccess
eAccessIn), VSIFOpen tries to open the specified image. If it succeeds,
it reads in 1024 bytes, then calls VSIRewind. If it fails, VSIFOpenL
tries to open the file. If this succeeds, 1024 bytes are read, then the
file is closed.

Is there a reason for this difference? Shouldn't the file just be
rewinded in the second case?
