I'm pretty sure we do better chunking on a subdirectory basis, especially 
as it allows us to do various optimizations (avoid diffing common parts).

Yes, you could try to do the same optimizations with chunking, but then 
you'd need to make sure that the chunking was always on a full tree entry 
boundary etc - ie much harder than blob chunking. 

But hey, numbers talk, bullshit walks.
