For some time I've been mildly annoyed that whenever I start emacs
and open a file that's under any sort of version control -- cvs,
svn, git or whatever -- I can't start editing right away, because
emacs has to pause for a while and load a bunch of version-control
cruft I never use. Sometimes it also causes problems later,
when I try to write to the file or if I update the directory.
It wasn't obvious what keywords to search for, but I finally found
emacs prevent OR disable autoload vc
(the vc was the important part), which led me to the
solution (found on
;; Disable all version control
(setq vc-handled-backends nil)
Files load much faster now!
