Well, it sounds like premature optimization to me.  I wonder how much 
performance impact that would really have, and if cgit's caching support doesn't 
negate any potential issue on busy servers anyway.

I would expect correctness in user experience first.  If correctness is shown to 
impact performance, I would expect solutions/compromises in those specific cases 
as needed.

Of course I'm free to patch it to my liking obviously.  This is just some user 
feedback for you.
