Anybody volunteering here? I can work around the problem in my new
code until the svn_wc_entry_t work is finished, or I can fork off and
do the entry work.

Open, sheesh. The only reason I can imagine having accessors is so we
can perform validation of "set" requests, and I think that so long as
the working copy library does NOT expose it's entry *writing*
functionality (that is, folks outside the WC library have read-only
access to the entry structures), we don't need that overhead.
