I've seen this in the monotone mailing list:
"The current method for determining if a file is binary involves reading
in the entire file into memory in lua, and then calling a C++
function to determine if that string is binary. Lua is stunningly
inefficient at reding in a large file (reading in 100MiB copies 1.4GiB)."
Is this true? I'm skeptical of this.
