The scalability limits of Monticello are well understood. PackageInfo
doesn't scale, at all. You put too many classes in a package, and
snapshotting gets really slow. Don't believe me? Make a change in
Morphic which has only 200 classes and save it.
And it's not like loading is any faster. Seaside takes 10 minutes to
build from locally cached  packages, only 12 seconds go to running
tests . This makes C++ compilation times seem fast by comparison.
