Yes. And when there are several operations for the same file, the cache
pays even more.

Yes. Every remote operation is slow, compared with whatever lisp code.

They should do also. It is very unlikely, that the root changes while
the cache is active.

I see. Maybe we find a hook, where we could invalidate the vc cache when
a file is written which does not exist on the disk?

When the file is removed from git outside Emacs. In this case,
git-registered must be nil.

I try to remember. The Emacs maintainers prefer context diffs, that's
why ediff-custom-diff-options is set to "-c" by default.
