Indeed, though it might not be sufficiently fast. Generating a list on
the last 10 commits in bar/* might require visiting 10k commits. That
could take a couple seconds. With a lot of subscribers polling at
regular intervals, that might get expensive.
However, we could perhaps heuristically limit such a search to the last
day or two. Or we could make the feature configurable, like downloading
