Thanks. I'm okay with a general "entries" file although that will
scale slightly worse. Ideally, there will be ONE "entries" file
for an entire hierarchy of checked-out folders, stored at the
root. Each directory could point at where it's check-out root
(or "entries" file) actually lives.

Note that I'm not advocating dropping the current mode of crawling
the entire repository to generate check-ins. I think both modes
need to be supported, to cater both to small and large projects.

Fair enough. But if it saves time to take it on faith, then it's
often a low-risk assumption (again, with "linear growth" being the
keyword here).

Cheers,
