But a "svnadmin dump" has to read other revision files, too (for files not
changed in the last revision), so the harddisk would be seeking again ...

I just want a nice, easy, streamlined image of some directory structure ...
Generated once or a few times a day, sent out without CPU load ...

With a generated .tar.gz the clients need to decompress, but otherwise have
*maximum* throughput.
And if I do just a .tar, I could transmit ~110MB/sec over GBit ... (with RAID
behind, of course).

Phil
