I'm aware :-).  Monotone is not as fast as git or hg.  OTOH, it is much
faster than when Linus tried it.  (Aside from general "correctness
before speed" philosophies, he managed to be the first to hit a small
but spectacular peformance bug.)  People use it to get real work done
projects the size of, e.g., Mozilla:

There are still some issues -- most notably the "initial pull" bug,
where initial repository clones take far longer than they should --
that are being actively worked on.  Not necessarily for everybody yet.
But seemed worth mentioning as worth a look... especially since parent
post insisted on directory rename...
