cgit = super-fast

For what it's worth, I tried out cgit instead of the slow gitweb and it really is significantly faster -- I can't even get "time" to show more 5ms per run.

cgit has some nice design features: for one, it directly uses libgit.a out of a git build, so it accesses data directly and as fast as git does. Also, every query internally produces a "cache" object for display. The cache objects then are designed to output to (and be read from) a static file-system cache if you turn on that option, so even a slow query will only be slow once.
