Since directories are just lists of entries anyway, we represent them
using the same skel syntax used for reps metadata -- so that's how
skel-like data ends up in the strings table.

Each subcell above is a directory name followed by the name of its node
revision (the name is a string, so the length comes first, followed by a
space; see subversion/libsvn_fs_base/util/skel.h for details, but you've
probably already read that file :-) ).
