Well you're avoiding memory allocation, which is one of the slowest 
operations... it'd be more than a few percent I'd expect.

I assume you're just taking out the inneficiency of RCS_magicrev (which 
could clearly work better the other way around - do the walklist and 
have it return a candidate branch, then test for the physical revision.. 
99% of the time you'd only have to go through a single iteration).
