Subversion is supposed to minimize network traffic but it assumes your
working copy is local and the repository is remote. Accessing a
repository over a VPN shouldn't be slow (aside from the initial checkout
of a large file set). When I watch the SVN console in subclipse it seems
that the subversion access is fairly quick and then it takes awhile for
Subclipse to update icon overlays or whatever it does post commit. I run
it in the background so it doesn't bother me much.

Working on a local app server with Eclipse and 512MB though is a
nightmare. I have 1 GB and could use some more.
