Bug Description

Just noticed that nexuiz-data is currently running on the package importer and top reports 4.6g for resident memory and 4859m for virt.

This needs to be investigated appropriately but that sounds far too excessive to not reveal a bug.

4GB is pretty big. It would at least be nice to investigate. Certainly
we shouldn't need to hold the entire working tree in memory, etc.
