Less disk space (depending on the number of patch-logs) I can believe,
but twice as fast seems ... unlikely -- a name-based find is usually
very very fast, especially when used just after creating the tree
(in many cases using linux no disk access at all would be required for
the find, as the entire tree would still be in the disk cache).
