Barry and many others obviously find the performance of non-git VCSes
acceptable. On the other hand, Brett has conceded that git's
performance has enough fans that it has to be on the table (even
though he admits to a strong bias against it, that's the major
Performance is *always* a consideration. IMO, now that it has been
