I've just built the latest darcs so that I could use --skip-conflicts
I'm doing all my work in hashed repos locally, and my perception of the
performance is that it's "different" to darcs-1 format repos. Some
things are very fast: whatsnew, pull/push --dry-run. Other things seem
to crunch my disk a lot and take a lot longer than I would expect. For
example, I just pushed a few patches from one GHC repo to another and it
went like this:

Writing inventory 3 done, 30 queued.
Writing inventory 4 done, 29 queued.
Writing inventory 33 done, 0 queued.
why is it writing *all* of the inventories? This is perhaps related to
http://bugs.darcs.net/issue1589. I thought the point of tagginng and
optimising is to avoid needing to write the old inventories?
