This is exactly the kind of deployment that can benefit from FSFSv7: the
changes in data layout and other details make cold-cache performance
much better than FSFSv6. Performance test results appear to corroborate
that; though I don't think anyone actually tested this by running
hundreds of clients against dozens of repositories.
