Not to mention that --update still has to stat the files to see if they
have changed, which is costly, 66 times, over nfs, on thousands upon
thousands of files each time.

Add to that the way we have to do multilib, there is at least one time
when 1/2 of the content you're running createrepo over doesn't exist in
any older repodata to read from (without a lot more gross hacks to stash
previous mid-run repodata somewhere).
