In my case, on cold run it takes ~30 seconds, and then ~2. Probably because
there's 6G of memory here, so all disk accesses are cached.

What's performance of V1? I can replace the globbing code with that we have

I also planed to make globbing lazy -- and don't it it unless we're installing
-- but maybe that's not important if V1 code works fine.
