It's not, for at least two reasons:
* Users of the FS API must have the same constraints as repository
clients, otherwise the whole thing falls on its face.
* The repos layer cannot implement this optimally; at a rough guess,
it would have to double the number of lookups performed:
o The node cache in an FSFS implementation detail, and this option
will affect how cache keys are generated.
o Likewise for actual lookups into the on-disk representation.
