To be honest, I hadn't noticed it at the time I sent the message. I guess
I just think that it might be a better indicator of progress than the
rate. And actually, showing both would probably be best. At the end it
could show the average rate over the entire process in addition to the
total bytes transferred.

One thing I didn't like about seeing the rate is that it just jumps all
over the place which I found less than useful. Showing the bytes
transferred would at least be a constant progression.

Most people are used to seeing this in a browser. In that scenario, you
are only downloading one largeish file so you typically have a fairly
constant transfer rate. With SVN, it can be a lot of small turnarounds
and the rate goes all over the place.

I don't consider it a problem, I just think it could be better. I do
wonder if some people might wonder why they are getting such low transfer
rates. Even on a LAN, when you do an update that is just bringing down
typical updates to source code the transfer rate is real low because the
file sizes are so small. When the update has a large object, like a big
Word document, then you suddenly see a multi-MB rate.
