Git was designed to track source code, there are warts that show up

I'd expect that if you want to deal with files over 100k, you should
assume that it doesn't all fit in memory.

well, as others noted, the problem is actually caused by doing the diffs, and that is something that is a very common thing to do with source code.

And I would assume that files of several MB would be able to fit in memory (again, this was assumed to be for development, and compilers take a lot of ram to run, so having enough ram to hold any individual source file while the compiler is _not_ using ram doesn't seem likely to be a problem)
