Hi John.

Thank you for including windows performance in your bzr work.  As a member
of a minority hoping to grow rapidly (bzr users on Windows) I appreciate the

I'm curious.  Does the time for open() even scale linearly in the number of
files *in a single directory *on Windows?  In other words, are your results
influenced by pushing/popping directory levels?  Or was your open/close test
done in a single directory?  Either way, yes or no, might shed some light on
why windows is so slow.
