Or to clarify even further, it's so slow that you really can't use "svn
ls" or anything else that uses RA->get_dir. List operations that used to
take a second now takes several minutes during which the server's httpd
process consumes 100% CPU. Hey, we could even call it a security
problem, because if you run a few "svn ls -R URL" in parallell, you'll
DoS that server very efficiently.

The only reason I can imagine not to release an 1.0.9 is to try to force
people over to 1.1.x, but I don't think it's fair. We should lure people
to 1.1.x using new cool features, not by crippling 1.0.x releases.
