Diagnostic idea: ^T repeatedly while it's being slow can help in
identifying exactly what's being slow. With TCL there's a strong chance
that it's not technically TCL. As a data point, I see slowness on a
10.6.8 Core Duo (i.e. i386) machine that is largely in xcodebuild, for
talks like removal where it is unclear to me why that's being called at
bill at scconsult.com or billcole at apache.org
(AKA @grumpybozo and many *@billmail.scconsult.com addresses)
