Wow... 20 minutes to stat 100K files? I don't know what to say. That's
83 file-stats per second, which doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

Let me turn the question around: when you make changes to the project,
do you do them *all over* the 1800 directories? In other words: is it
a realistic use case to have the entire repository checked out? Do
developers really do that? Or do they just checkout working copies of
subdirs? And if they really do have the whole thing checked out, are
they going to be running 'svn status' and/or 'svn commit' from the top
of the hierarchy?
