I've stuffed a bunch of repositories in there though.  Have a look.
See anything obvious I can do to improve it?

Lots of room for breakage there, definitely.  But after reading that
lump of comment from the source code, I'm wondering if I'll have a

slightly faster, but at the cost of stability.  I'd rather go back to
a method that works reliably.
