emacs-bzr, org-7.7

The largest file I have is 7.2M. Some 6300 entries, 137k lines. Agenda
commands are slow, of course, but otherwise the performance is
acceptable. Anything that involves completion is quite slow. Opening ID
links is also slower than I would like. Anything that works on the whole
buffer can take a long time (cycling from OVERVIEW to CONTENTS takes more
than a minute), so try to avoid that. (I keep old notes in that file, so
mostly I search or link to entries.)

If you are using the current bzr version of emacs, make sure to set
`bidi-display-reordering' to nil.
