Our rule for the entries file has always been: for 'subdir' entries
(as opposed to 'this_dir' entries).... only show the entry's name and
flags. But don't show working revision, URL, etc.

The reason for this was traversal speed, IIRC. We don't want to open
up a new entries file just to see if some subdir entry is scheduled a
certain way.
