Unlike origlen, base vs dir lengths are not strictly needed; we
prepare the base including '/', and we know we always have just one
'/' at the end, so anybody that uses dirlen to truncate it back to
the original before passing it down can truncate to (baselen-1), no?

In other words, something like this (not an incremental but a
replacement) to keep calling "baselen" the length of the leading
constant part we append to?
