Network I/O is *always* the bottleneck on commits. We can send diffs
both ways now, unlike CVS.

It also means you can do an 'svn diff' and see your local mods when
you're offline.

As Greg said, disk is nearly infinitely cheap. Bandwidth is not. :)

Sam, take a gander over the README file in libsvn_wc/. It's a bit
old, but will give you an idea about what's going on in SVN/.
