You may like to read notes/entries-caching which contains some of my
observations about the entries file code.

The current log file execution code already does most (perhaps all) of
that, take a look at do_sync in svn_wc__entry_modify. Also the
entries caching code should ensure that the entries file is read only
once per access baton. I believe the checkout/update slow down is due
to repeated writing of the entries file, at present it is written once
per log file.
