Please note that the synthetic test repo was added *after* coming up with
the patch, *after* performance benchmarking on a certain really big
repository (it is not hard to guess what use case we are optimizing,
right?).

In that light, I would like to register the fact that Jeff's performance
work is trying to improve a very real world, that of more than 2,000
developers in our company [*1*].

Ciao,
