FWIW, it got into the code when myself and sbutler were first
starting out with storing additional information in the entries
file. There was no mention whatsoever of skels in any related

I'm sorry that we did not bend over backwards and looked into
server-side code hidden in subversion/libsvn_fs_base/util
while working in working copy code in subversion/libsvn_wc
to find out whether there was something there we could
use to store information in the entries file (a concept
private to libsvn_wc).

If you want that API to be used in general, put it into
public headers where people can actually see it.
Otherwise, ridiculous yerself :-P
