Nonsense. There's nothing messy about any of it. The filesystem
library has an API, and does its thing. The repository library wraps
the filesystem API to do things that are flatly wrong for the
filesystem API to do. If you can find a way to wrap the FS without
using wrappers, I'm all ears (or eyes).
