Description : a pure git implementation of a sliding window memory map manager

When reading from many possibly large files in a fashion similar to random
access, it is usually the fastest and most efficient to use memory maps.
Although memory maps have many advantages, they represent a very limited system
resource as every map uses one file descriptor, whose amount is limited per
process. On 32 bit systems, the amount of memory you can have mapped at a time
is naturally limited to theoretical 4GB of memory, which may not be enough for
some applications.

This is a dependency for python-gitdb.
