I was guessing that entries were put into those dirs according to some sort
of hash algorithm. much the same way that squid puts cached files into a
tree of hash subdirectories. (which can be very fast).

I think the reason the one guy working in his spare time did better than all
the microsquish programmers was because:
a. he was the guy who happened to have a good idea; instead of whatever
flunky/intern was put on the project.
b. he didn't have a manager or PHB to stop him from doing a good job. :)
(I'm sure you can all think of ways that managers inhibit productivity and
good design).
