Cool. I should have entries hash -> tree done soon too.

Ok, here's what I said in the email I referenced:

Maybe I'm missing something about the structure of the repository, but
this was really confusing. Especially given that 'svn co' give
different paths (no old-flame).

I want to build a tree out of this, which should be rooted at some
arbitrarily named dir. Since the working copy that checking this out
results in looks like this:


and so on, I think that the unnamed root node should correspond to
'flame'. That really just means stripping off the first part of that
output, but that seems weird.

Am I missing something?
