Hmm. You're right. I'm not sure how you could possibly get a wcroot
into such a state. You're not allowed to delete it, nor copy/move
something over it. ... well, maybe we *could*, but it would be quite
weird to not do that from a checkout of the parent.

Nope. parent_relpath is intended to be a key, so that you can easily
find all nodes within a given directory. (which is also why we have
I_PARENT and friends).

Regarding inheriting repos_* values... I'm beginning to think that may
be more trouble than its worth. The idea was to avoid having to
compute them all the time, or to have to update them during a switch,
etc. But... having to compensate for their absence is now seeming to
be worse.
