"Stercus tauri", as the ancients used to say.

In fact, Subversion WC performance sucks on Unix, too. We make far too
many system calls to get the information we need. As to Windows
performance, some of the WC design decisions we made (that have no
noticeable effect on Unix) cause slow-down Windows. We can't easily back
down on those decisiions now without a WC redesign, but saying it's all
Windows' fault is missing the point.
