Thank you for the data.  Such information would be important
consideration to help to find out whether enabling Bloom filters in
given repository would be worth it.

Right, this is understandable.  If files are diep in hierarchy, then we
have to unpack more tree objects to find out if the file was changed in
a given commit (provided that finding differences do not terminate early
thanks to hierarchical structure of tree objects).

This looks a bit strange (or maybe I don't understand something).

Bloom filter can answer "no" and "maybe" to subset inclusion query.
This means that if file was *not* changed, with great probability the
answer from Bloom filter would be "no", and we would skip diff-ing
trees (which may terminate early, though).

On the other hand if file was changed by the commit, and the answer from
a Bloom filter is "maybe", then we have to perform diffing to make sure.

That is quite nice speedup, anyway (git repository cannot be even
considered large; medium -- maybe).


P.S. I wonder if it would be worth to create some synthetical repository
to test performance gains of Bloom filters, perhaps in t/perf...

Best,
