We recently decided to stop eliding repos_path/revision in the base
node, I think we should stop eliding it from working nodes as well.
Then read_info would return it when available, and NULL would be a
definitive answer.

This might make some of the scan calls redundant. For example, relocate
could simply skip nodes that don't have repos_path/revision.
