Let me clarify something: the reporter vtable really ought to have a
new function called "start_report()", to bookend finish_report(). To
start the report, we need to state which revision the report (txn) is
going to be based on. At the moment, we're overloading the *first* call
to set_path() with this responsibility.

So really, that set of calls above isn't so hideous. In a better world,
it would look like

  delete_path("") # delete the target of the update
