The new --depth flag coming in 1.5 may address your particular use
case. However, what you're doing currently shouldn't take 32x time of
course. However, I'm not sure what the client is doing that causes
this. Is it needlessly re-opening the .svn/ metadata many times?
You'd have to debug into libsvn_wc to find out, I think.
