That is a really weird (and unsubstantiated) conclusion you're making there.
I don't think that this has got anything to do with git, it's got more
to do with the underlying FS (ntfs) which is why they are flipping NTFS
for GVFS. They may try to spin it as "git doesn't scale" but really,
their solution shows where the real issue is more likely to be located.

I'll just drop these things here: "Source Depot" & enlistme (<- that's
my bona fide right there).

I don't think that the windows source is in git at all (yet?)... but
they may be experimenting with trying to get it in there. And it doesn't
look like it's going well for them because they're patching and hacking
