This is a substantial part of what I meant with the last use case I sent
(code study/audit). A lot of times I'm interested in searching and
browsing all commits that contained a string or touched a path. Two
standard features in gitk. Or how is the activity of a code base
evolving with time.

It is very addictive once you get used to it. And given that it is
typically almost half size than a subversion working copy, including the
whole history, it is economic too.
