Would it be possible to place the find on the server side of things? My
limited
experience is that it's better to execute the query on the server and
stream the results back. Otherwise you end up sending more data over
the network then you have to. My experience is the network is the
bottleneck, but most of my experience is with financial systems, not
version control systems...
