Subversion Book (local machine vs. something else)

As I was reading the book over again, I noticed a few things that I thought
I would bring up here as I come across them.

In chapter 3, in the section "Initial Checkout", it mentions "local
machine". in reference to where the checkout will occur. Obviously this is
the machine where subversion is run. Now if you are in either a citrix or
ssh type situation, your "local machine" is now not where subversion is
checking out too, it's checking out to a "remote server", but local to
subversion. I have worked with people that take some things a little to
literally, and get confused and think it means their local machine. I know
it's a bit pedantic, but if maybe the wording could be changed to reflect
what is really going on, for those few who make our lives harder. ;)
