This makes me think - would it make sense to make some unorthodox
optimizations? I'm speaking of creating a temporary cache for data
that is currently slow to compute? I.e. something that *is* derived
information and would never need to be transferred around, but would
help local performance. Perhaps a "bzr optimize" command...
