Having said that, I notice that "careful and slow" is just "too slow
to be usable" even on a small tree like ours.  Try running

    $ git log -M -L:get_name:builtin/describe.c

and see how long you have to wait until you hit the first line of

If some of the many NEEDSWORK in the code were fixed, this may
