Thousands and beyond.  To be fair, there's a few obscure optimizations
that will have to come on line as these edge cases get exercised but,
once we're into a few thousands of changesets in a version --- if your
project has more than that in a given year then you are probably out
of control.

(Of course, the sum of commits across _branches_ should scale, in
essense, infinitely.)
