But what should this do?  From a vc list-files function I'd expect (and

one if it is tracked using vc-state (or something alike)?

I'd really like it to be more feature-rich. I.e. to accept arguments which files it will return, or blacklist/whitelist.

In my limited testing, Git can handle it and will still return the list of files much faster than the current find-based solution.

It's a bit more complex to implement, though. That's why it has been on my list for a while without much progress.
