Tuning is one thing, and certainly valuable, but the real problem is
that it uses certain algorithms that fundamentally don't scale,
primarily in conflict handling during merging or patch commutation.

Now, with a small group of people, these are pretty easy to work around.
For something like the group of contributors to the Linux Kernel, this
is not the case.

Dave _is_ working on the issue, and would undoubtedly welcome any
insight people have on it.  But it's going to require a broader skillset
than "haskell performance tweaking".
