Wow!  How many 1000-file, 10 MB projects have millions of file
revisions in a single category--branch--version _with no cacherevs_?
It sounds like a great example that could be used for evangelism and
demonstrating GNU Arch's scalability!

(I cannot think of any.  If you did not mean the numbers literally,
perhaps you should not have picked such an outrageously inflated
example.  It makes it hard to take your argument seriously, especially
when you claim that's a conservative estimate.)
