Btw, you should possibly look at cold-cache numbers, and numbers for 
projects that aren't fully packed. They can often be _dramatically_ 

That said, the dramatic change would probably be if there were some way to 
avoid using "--full-history" (rather than "--parents", which doesn't add 
_that_ much overhead), since that "follow all parents" behaviour of 
full-history is usually what really makes a big deal.

But I guess for gitweb, you do want to use --full-history in this case ;(
