Flushing always is not an option in this _temp_ function (see its name).. unless you just silently fixed all callers from svn_wc__set_depth and svn_wc__entry_remove to no longer expect an entries cache?

This temp function should be removed when we are done removing the entry write locations, but it is now a vital part of the update editor to allow removing other dependencies on the entries cache.

Other option:
Maybe the code should be moved into entries.c?

The function was designed to have just that single caller until we can remove that caller completely.
