See some discussion in #931.

Essentially, want Allegro to allocate FS_ENTRY less often (so the user has to destroy it less often), as well as provide more convenience overloads that just take the C string directory/file name.

Do we have al_dup_fs_entry() or similar? If not, perhaps we should as part of whatever concrete change comes from this. This way we could have whatever replaces al_read_directory just allocate a single structure in the beginning and if the user wants to keep a particular entry around (probably not a common use case), they can make a copy.
