The developers with older versions of Git are much less likely to even
notice the difference since the older versions spend the bulk of the
runtime elsewhere.  So the 5.5s of difference are likely still about
5.5s of difference for the old versions.

But not likely appropriate for some applications, and not likely matched
by the behavior of other version control systems in VC.  Still, it's a
bit too far out of reach from inside Emacs.
