In my experience annotate is too slow to be used on a web server as HTTP
requests come in, but for HTTP you want responses on the order of
milliseconds, and you are already losing a fair amount of time in
shunting out a new process.
any account (it takes some time), I've never seen a speed issue that
made me feel like I needed to outright avoid it. I guess there might be
issues with repos with lots of conflicts, but that's in the same bucket
with all the other issues at that point...
Also, +1 at making the CLI annotate output cleaner. (Preferably, leaving
the XML output alone.)
