3-4 days? Seriously?

this only leaves two options:
* you're a git fanboy, trying to discredit SVN
* your Windows setup is completely screwed up

Seriously: I often check out projects with 35K files within an hour or
so, and that's with one of the worst AV installed (Kaspersky).
If it takes you that long, something is wrong, and it definitely is
*not* svn or TSVN.
