    There might also be heuristics that explicitly _notice_ slow growth, not
    necessarily as a function of time, but as a function of the tree structure

    For example, spreading out (and the inherent assumption of "slow growth")
    might make sense for the root directory, and possibly for a level below
    that. It almost certainly does _not_ make sense for a directory created
    four levels down.
