Slowness on mdv SVN was different, it was a directory inside svn, not a
real directory. Here we have an ext4 partition with dir_index option
enabled, so I think a directory with a few thousands files should not
be a problem. But we can still create subdirectories later, if it is
really needed, but I don't think we will need it.
