A little bit, but I think I've addressed that in another email.

Should we sacrifice some correctness for speed? If backends other than Git (and maybe Hg) can't return untracked files, any file that the user just created won't show up in project-find-file. I think it's a problem.

We could make up some performance using filenotify and caching, so that 'find', though slower, would at least be called infrequently.
