yes, a lot of new, very slow sanity checking code went in, to prevent some classes of bug we let in in the 0.16 release cycle. then I packed my belongings for a long vacation (assuming a nice low-key few months with no new developments), which I am still enjoying, and will be until june.
linus just picked a bad time. when I was last doing stress and scalability work on monotone it could work -- a little slowly -- with the entire CVS-imported gcc history, stretching back to the 80s. this was a bigger history than linux. we will get back to that sort of speed once I can give it some real tuning.
