Functions with double underscores (svn_wc*__*entries_write) are not public
API functions, and therefore are not exposed through our language bindings

This is strongly discouraged. But inevitably folks will find a need for
directly editing the .entries files. Fortunately, the 1.4 entries format is
super-simple to parse and write -- if you can read and understand
libsvn_wc/entries.c:write_entry() and read_entry(), you're golden.
