It'd look more like a generic tree walker:

   def do_dir(path):
      entries = svn_fs_dir_entries(path)
      for entry in entries:
         do_stuff(path + / + entry)
      if is_dir(path + / + entry)
         do_dir(path + / + entry)

There'd be no "delta" code, as there's nothing to compare against. So
all the "is this child from txn A also in txn B?" stuff from dir_delta
is gone, as is all the "are we ignoring ancestry?" stuff, and ... well,
the code would just get much, much simpler.

As was pointed out, though, there might be folks depending on the
svn_repos_dir_delta API though, so removing it might not be a viable option.
