What metric are you using to measure speed? What is the definition of
"too slow"? The mozilla source is a *huge* dataset. How do you know
one hour is "too slow"?

Repeat the experiment with a cvs repository, compare the results, and
I'll listen to you. I want science here, not fuzzy feelings. :-)

(P.S. Yes, in general, we already know that our DAV network layer is
slower than CVS. This isn't news. And we've discussed many times why
this is so, and how to improve it. But mailing statements like "hey,
this seems slow to me" is neither interesting news nor productive.)
