Eep ... :)

Another thing I've been thinking about is this: Why are we using SHA1
checksums on the server and on the wire for consistency checks when a
64-bit CRC would do the job just as well, and 15 times cheaper? And
banging my head against the wall for not thinking of this 10 years ago.

I can sort of understand the use of SHA1 as a content index for
client-side pristine files. On the server, however ... dunno. Maybe we
could design something akin to what the rsync protocol does, but for
repository-wide data storage. Could be quite tricky to achieve locality,

There I go off on a tangent again.
