Do you have data to support that?  I just cited mine, and it doesn't
sound intensive to me.  E.g., when some command invokes Git, Git could
decide that it's time to do a background GC, and that will be quite
CPU intensive.  And yet we all use VC without fear.

But I must stop raising the noise level here, because that's what all
I write seems to be good for -- making noise that no one takes
seriously, starting from Lars.  Sorry.
