But performance from Explorer is not typical of performance for
Subversion itself (i.e. M$loth made stupid decisions in the design of
Explorer - e.g. scan every single file before returning). A much better
test would be a small script which would create many files and then time
opening and reading those files both sequentially and "randomly" to see
whether the underlying filesystem scaled well under different directory
