Latest report from that upstream thread is initial memory reductions of
of 18-21% depending on the repository, with a runtime variance of -6 to
+2%. The Gentoo repo took 6% less time, but the linux-kernel repo took
2% longer. Linus and co are exploring that now, just to make sure they
didn't introduce any bugs.

Maciej started the best discussion on that, in Message-ID
200902160805.55088.reavertm@... Think we managed to flesh out all
of a specification there, but I don't think anybody has started
development yet. The development side would probably tie in quite well
with unfinished GLEP60.
