Yes, it does mean that. But that's not a big deal. My Mac does
"cat foo | wc -c" on a 20 MB file in about 0.6 seconds; on a 500 MB
file it takes about 15 seconds.

You're quite right that it would save some server time to use the
information already available in the file system. My earlier point
was that the capabitility *does* exist today. It isn't quite as fast
as it could be, but if a normal commit is under 50 MB or so, it's
still pretty fast. And yes, if someone tries a 600 MB commit they
will wait 15 seconds before getting the error message. I can't see
that as a problem.
