Let's not be prejudiced against WANs; I can get from my office to points
in Virginia at 100Mbps, I believe.

Generally speaking, Subversion can't really guess whether bandwidth or
CPU speed is the best thing to optimize for. In general, CPU speed gets
cheaper faster, so it's nice that Subversion optimizes for bandwidth,
but that's not always right. We could add a config option for "never
diff on commit", perhaps. (There's a similar issue for updates; we'd
either have to make that a config option on the server, or allow the
client to request plaintext updates.)
