Thanks for the feedback.

I've made the following adjustments:

Updated the gitolite version to get a performance fix for creating a 
repository (so it's ~O(1) rather than ~O(number of repositories)) is now paginated to improve 
pageload.  This works moderately well when using the default sorting (by 
project), but unfortunately, it still needs to run thousands of git 
commands to get the information when sorting by last change or owner. 
The popular solutions to that problem seem to be "don't use gitweb" :).

Patched gitolite to permit repository names starting with '_', since we 
have a couple of those.
