Will this avoid the HEAD request too? I assume so.

I was playing around with trunk last night after Greg fixed the XML
parsing bug I reported. Using that change you committed to avoid
fetching pristines, I saw checkout of a branch (for which I already
had all of the pristines) dropped from 2:50 to 1:35. The client still
sent the server a HEAD and PROPFIND for each file so getting rid of
all of those requests would have undoubtedly took a lot of additional
time off the command.
