I'm playing with monotone right now. Superficially it looks like it
has tons of gee-whiz neato stuff... however, it's *agonizingly* slow.
I mean glacial. A heavily sedated sloth with no legs is probably

Using monotone to pull itself too over 2 hours wall-time and 71
minutes of CPU time.

Arguably brand-new CPUs are probably about 2x the speed of what I have
now and there might have been networking funnies --- but that's still
35 monutes to get ~40MB of data.

The kernel is ten times larger, so does that mean to do a clean pull
of the kernel we are looking at (71/2*10) ~ 355 minutes or 6 hours of
CPU time?
