Yeah; I would be perfectly happy if using directory names required a
magic syntax.  E.g., for doing a delta against the directory FOO,
something really magic like `dir:FOO' (which has the advantage that it's
clearly not a normal filename), or `./FOO' (which is somewhat compatible
-- we'd probably want to accept just `.' as a special case for the
latter too).

Of course there's always that annoying backward compatibility thing...
