Fixable. The reason it takes so long is 2 round trips per file being
checked out. I have a branch that will massively reduce that by changing
the disk format; I haven't profiled the lightweight checkout difference
yet, because while the fast-path is available its not integrated yet and
we're still paying a roundtrip per file.
