I said this same thing in my earlier timing emails. A good software
engineer will always keep optimization in mind when developing but, as
the saying goes, "Premature optimization is the root of all evil. :)"
In knowing there are some major time fluctuations in Subversion, the
developers of the project can keep their eyes out for anything that
doesn't seem quite right. Extensive profiling will need to be done at a
later point, but just the knowledge there is a problem is usually
sufficient to get the ball rolling.
