That's one of the suggestions in notes/wc-improvements.

Really? Take something like status, at present every modified file
causes the working file to be read/translated. When I use Subversion
most of my mods change the file size, so the size check should bypass
the need to read/translate those files. The resut should be that
status rarely needs to read/translate working files, while at present
it needs to read/translate every modified file. That should make a
big difference if the files are not cached in memory.
