Actually from my point of view, the big slowdown is that it (apparently)
doesn't do any sort of pipelining, so fetching a bunch of changesets (plus
various signing-checking stuff) gets absolutely murdered by latency.

Oh, BTW, I'm not using a local mirror.

In New York, most people don't have cars, so if you want to kill a person, you
have to take the subway to their house.  And sometimes on the way, the train
is delayed and you get impatient, so you have to kill someone on the subway.
