Thanks Philip, Magnus, Sam. There's no question that I have an outlier problem. 
But others must have similar, for
instance master video files.

 I need both remote archiving/retrieval and version control. FYI we are 
archiving compressed Linux disk images for VMs
and hypervisors. We are hardware-software makers and manufacturing blasts the 
disk images directly onto SSD drives. The
rest of the repo is a varied mix of far smaller binaries and text files.

running on a fast desktop it can take thousands of seconds to perform a status 
or commit, completely pegging one or more
