shouldn't react with permissiondenied on read access to invalid name

Bug Description

At the branch directory level, we only allow .bzr, .bzr.backup and backup.bzr.

Even read access to other names triggers permission denied:

mwh@grond:trunk$ sftp
Connecting to
sftp> cd ~mwhudson/pydoctor/dev
sftp> ls foobar
Couldn't stat remote file: Permission denied

This is silly, we should just signal not found in this case.

Yep. This bug explains it better though IMHO so I'll mark the older one a dupe.
