See, this is a tough one. People using largefiles usually fall into 1 of 2
1) People with a lower number of extremely large binaries
2) People with a huge number of

both of these categories. Ideally we'd optimize in a way that won't leave
either side out in the cold, but generally I think group (1) is probably
bigger than (2).
In any case, I'd like to run some performance tests on both our real
repository and some generated test repositories of various sizes before
this patch is applied. I hope to get to this tomorrow.

I agree that (2) is more appropriate here.
