- Meaning that every day it's a new set of clients that still have no
existing install? if not then this only applies to the first day.
- Big AMOUNT of files or BIG files? And define big... 100,000 files
of 150kb or 100 files of 150mb.

Also, clearly, working copies or repo clones are out of the question
if they don't have the space to keep a duplicate copy. Working copies
have pristine copies and the repo clone option is, by definition, a
duplicate since you need to extract content from the clone.

You want to avoid seeking and I assume this is at the server end. A
working copy update would only be seeking the last few revisions. A
tar based approach will seek the length of the tar to evaluate
differences to sync.
