So do these or do these not involve doing URI escaping? %20 for space,
etc. By calling them 'fs paths', the assumption is that these are in
UTF-8, and there is no marshalling / escaping to even think about,
except when converting it to or from a URI or dirent. Is that the

svn_fspath__ seems better to me. svn_fs__path_ sounds like this is all
internal to libsvn_fs, whereas I understand you want this in
libsvn_subr for layers to use that are _not_ specifically talking about
svn_fs internals.
