Either I didn't see it, or I didn't understand it.

As I understand your proposal you want to avoid putting the revision
number in an entry file when the revision number matches the one in
the parent entry file.

Do you agree?

At present a status operation will read an entries file and get the
revision number. If the revision number is not present then to get it
the status operation must read the parent's entry file, and then maybe
the parent's parent's entry file, and so on up to the root.

Do you agree?

If the operation which used to read a single entry file now has to
read several entry files it will be slower.

Do you agree?

While your idea may make update faster, it will make other operations
slower.

Do you agree?
