The only entires entry on a new file is:

/a.txt/0/dummy timestamp//Tfoo

This is a special record that's never sent to the server.

I'll have to look at what happens if you try to send the entries.extra
data on a new file (even whether it's do-able).  Without that ability
there's no point in transmitting a mergepoint to the client as you
can't send it back.
