Note that the limiting factor is the size of a project tree right now.
If your system can't cache data im memory whose size is three to four
times the project tree size, arch runs quite slow.

This is just an implementation detail, and not a result of the general
design.  Systems such as CVS use file timestamps to ignore unchanged
files, and arch currently doesn't.
