Some informal tests on the darcs darcs repo (2010-06-28):

  lazy get (--no-cache) goes up from 20s to 3 minutes;
  however, full get goes from 40 minutes to 3 minutes

So this is really promising!  There's a regression with lazy gets,
which Alexey has been working on, hopefully with some results.

In the meantime, I've filed http://bugs.darcs.net/issue1889 so that
we don't accidentally release Darcs 2.5 with the regression.

Note that there's also another potential perceived regression in that
we get very little feedback when downloading packs.  Even if it's
actually much faster in reality, folks may *think* it's slower.

I think we're going to need some help with http://bugs.darcs.net/issue1306
