Hmmm, my emacs branch just hit 700 revisions (in this archive), and I
have no obvious problems in daily usage -- and I access it remotely over
a slow link!  However the "tag" command does seem to have some
bogosities with many revisions.

Anyway, even if this is a problem, I think bumping the version is pretty
much equivalent to changing your archive in this respect

Would you like fries with that?
