Thinking about it a bit more, I think translated_size and
last_mod_time are a bit odd to have in NODE_DATA - although they are
part of both BASE_NODE and WORKING_NODE: they really do apply only to
BASE and the *current* working node: they are part of the optimization
to determine if a file has changed. Presumably, when a different layer
of WORKING becomes visible, we'll be recalculating both fields.
If that's the case, shouldn't we just hold onto them in their respective tables?

I've been informing around on IRC to understand the difference between
why that would apply to file_external, but not to symlink_target. The
difference isn't clear to me yet. Do you have anything which might

Done. (In my local patch-in-preparation.)
