Hi Phil,

Feel free to replace Strings with FileEntries anywhere. It will be a 
great contribution. Those Strings are leftovers from before FileEntry.

I'm sure there are plenty of places in need of cleanup. As we can't 
schedule anyone the task of cleaning up the system, we do it in small 
unplanned steps, anytime we find an annoyance and feel like cleaning it.
