comment Isn't there a substantial problem with SVN tags?
Git stores repositories locally, organized by content (hash), with no duplication. The cost to store a tag is on the order of a file with a name and a SHA-1 hash of a commit.

comment Designing a REST api by URI vs query string
The RFC is only concerned with hierarchy insofar as it defines a syntax and algorithm for resolving relative URI references. Could you elaborate or cite some sources explaining why the examples in the original post are not conforming?

comment Big graph traversal with OOP
What do the rows and columns of the matrix represent? Is it sparse? What format is it provided in? How is the graph (i.e, adjacency/incidence) determined from the matrix?

comment Are noncontiguous arrays performant?
Is there a reason you can't just call TrimExcess on the list once it is populated? Or perhaps create a single list as scratch space, populate it, copy to a new exactly-allocated list, clear the scratch list, and repeat?
