New feature request for an optional local copy

Subversion is a very excellent tool. I do like it to manage my codes,
docs, etc. A local copy is very convenient to diff, revert the codes
and to make a good off-line work.

But if there are a reliable & consistent network connection and the
band-width isn't considered too, the local copy gives less benefits.
Two copies of the codes will consume a lot of disk spaces if the
project is very huge.

A new feature is suggested as the following:

1) when the project is checked, an optional local copy can be selected.

2) The local meta information only includes the time-stamp,url, etc if
the no-local-copy checkout is taken. All the following operations
(diff, revert) will fetch their information from the server. This may
be similar with the CVS's schema.

BTW: I'm a new comer and can't find the similar thread by doing a
simple search in the maillist. If the topic had been talked about, pls
drop it. Thanks.
