Cool, patches look great BTW.

It is a larger patch than I would have wanted it to be. But it
essentially doesn't change behavior in the common case. Seeing that
slowdown is certainly not what we want to see.

Can you run the version with "-1 -P profiledir" and send me an archive
of the files in that dir after a sync run? If you can do the same for
the old AND the new version, so I can see the differences, that would
even be better.

My syncs have remained equally fast than before.
