The value of "fs_path" there comes from
svn_client__path_relative_to_root(..., include_leading_slash=TRUE) which
says, "Return the path of ABSPATH_OR_URL relative to the repository root
(REPOS_ROOT) in REL_PATH (URI-decoded)".
The dirent_uri API defines "relpath" as never having a leading slash, so
we can't use svn_relpath_join(). The API does not specify whether a
"uri" is URI-encoded, so we suppose we can use svn_uri_join().
I think that way of using the APIs is not ideal, but it will do for now.

Not sure what "other case" you are referring to.
