Speed-up possiblities on NTFS

I am a happy long-term user of TSVN. Even so, I sometimes notice a slow-down when accessing a folder containing thousands of version controlled items in nested folders.

As I understand, a lot of time is spent searching files, checking their modification times and so on. The status cache is reducing that load somewhat, but it still seems to be the bottleneck (correct me if I'm wrong).

I wonder if using a technique similar to the one used by the "Search Everything" tool (http://www.voidtools.com/) could be used to provide a major speed improvement on NTFS. "Everything" uses the NTFS MFT to quickly (!) locate files based on some pattern, and returns their location and file attributes.

The author of "Everything" even provides an SDK, so one could quickly test it with TSVN. The source code is, as far as I can tell, in the public domain.

I don't have enough knowledge of TSVN to test this, but what do you think, could this worthwhile to pursue?
