DOH! You're right (of course) that the API still contains the repos and only
the on-disk representation has been optimized. I'm working on a patch to add
$ReposRoot$ as a keyword, though I don't expect it to get into 1.3 (sadly).

I'm already thinking about the next step, which is to be able to retrieve
properties from the containing directory whilst looping on the files and do it
without having to recreate the information for each file. The only way I can
think to do that is to have a pointer to the directory properties from within
the file object.
