If I understand correctly, the reason for APR to add these flags is
because some of the information is really expensive to fetch on some
platform and there's nothing APR can do about it.

For us it might be different. Maybe we can do something about the cause of
the problem instead of introducing API complexity.

The problem is that we get and transfer entryprops in other places as
well. For example, do_status will do this and the cmdline client will
throw it away. Should we add flags here too?

I'm not saying I object to this change if it is shown to be hard to
optimize the lower level code.
