Comments/Questions:

Do you think this need might be a result of cvs being too slow for people to
use in a truly distributed fashion because of all of the network stuff it
has to deal with?

In other words, is it feasible to consider that because Subversion generates
less network i/o that the need for distributed repositories will become less
and less over time?

Am I just not getting the point of distributed repo's? :-)

(please cc me directly as i'm not on the subversion list)
