Comment(by warner):

 Yeah, the first run with the new immutable-directory code will have to re-
 upload all of your directories, so you should see a slowdown on the first
 run. But after that, the second and later runs should be super quick, much
 faster than the second-and-later runs of the old (mutable directory) code,
 because the immutable-directory code will be doing fast sqlite lookups
 instead of a bunch of tahoe-side directory reads.

 If you keep seeing slowdowns and can confirm that nothing much has changed
 between subsequent runs, let's take a look at the SQL schema and make sure
 we're not missing an index on something important.

 I'll add a note to the release notes to prepare folks for this change and
 for the initial slowdown.
