hg status slow

I have a tree where there is a directory which is not checked into
mercurial.  This directory has tons of files, and causes hg status to
take a long time to return.  Adding this directory to .hgignore has no
effect on the timing, but neither does using -X.  I think I understand
why .hgignore has no effect on file traversal and probably can't be
easily made to, but I don't understand why -X doesn't cause traversal of
the given directory to be avoided. Are there any plans to change the
current behavior?
