      Description

      FSFS stores directories as serialized hashes in fulltext.
      
      This causes any changes in-or-under such a directory to create an overly-large
      revision file; with directories whose number of (immediate) children grows
      linearly over time, the size of the directory's representation grows
      quadratically over time.
      
      This issue calls for a more efficient storage of directories in FSFS.
