Well, however slow deletes on NTFS might be, they are not
7-minutes-for-a-single-file slow...

It's interesting to time several operations on the same project tree
with 30 000 files:

- checkout from Subversion (this actually creates on the order of 60
000 files + SVN back-end operations)
- export from Subversion (creating only 30 000 files + SVN back-end operations)
- copy of the entire folder (reading and writing file structures for
about 60 000 files, without SVN back-end operations)
- unzipping the entire folder from an archive (creating 30 000 files
without SVN back-end operations)
