I have a checkout of the gcc tree, it has 78,000 files. Now it uses
svn: but if it were to use http: then the serf checkout log would be 4
orders of magnitude bigger than the neon log. 83 years becomes 1 or 2
days.

The neon log is independent of the size of the checkout, the serf log
scales with the size of the checkout. If this were memory we would say
we have a scaling problem. Do scaling problems not apply to disk space?
