I'd like to remind everyone that we knew about the performance
regression at the 1.1.0 release. Having 1.1.0-rc4 on svn.collab.net
might have made more people aware of it. But it was not something that
wasn't known. We made a judgement call on how serious it was based upon
the data we had at the time. I suspect that it wouldn't have changed
anything though had 1.1.0-rc4 been on svn.collab.net. Most of us don't
use `svn ls`.
