Upgrade has had no performance tuning and it's possible that upgrade
executes more SQLite queries than checkout. The number of queries has a
significant performance effect on network disks:


Upgrade copies the pristines, so it's reading and writing from the same
working copy. Checkout reads pristines from the network and writes to
disk, this could be faster depending on the performance of disk and

Performance on network disks is a concern.
