Yeah, it matters a lot more when doing timestamp based traversal

Hmm. I wonder if that is a really good trade-off.
"checkout" is to parse a single commit object and grab the "tree"
field, while "log" is to parse millions of commit objects to grab
their "parents" and "committer timestamp" fields ("log path/spec"
needs to grab "tree", too, so that does not make "tree" extremely
uncommon compared to the other two fields, though).
