We are using the Publish Build Artifacts task and it is incredibly slow. We'd like to see this get faster.

        I'd recommend a solution to ya'll: index artifact files by hash. Perhaps SHA256. And then skip files which are already uploaded. Then an "artifact" is just a set of files and their hashs. And when you download it, it's all resolved as it should be.

        Used in lots of stuff. Git, IPFS, etc.
