> When the number of children under a directory grows very large, insertion becomes very
costly.  E.g. creating 1M entries takes 10s of minutes.  This is because the complexity of
an insertion is O\(n\). As the size of a list grows, the overhead grows n^2. (integral of
linear function).  It also causes allocations and copies of big arrays.
