Is that just creating/deleting directories in the sandbox, or does it
include wading through the repository looking for stuff to checkout and
not finding any?  You still have to do the latter in any case.

Pretty much all of checkout.c and update.c.  Currently, the code creates
directories with their administrative files and changes into them as it
goes; what you're talking about is a major change to the architecture.
