Why are you checking out all of the tags? Normally you simply check out
the trunk of the repository or one specific tag, not all 200 of them.

If your repository looks like this:

/trunk/
/tags/
/tags/foo-1.0
/tags/foo-1.1
/tags/foo-1.2

You would check out the /trunk portion of it, and ONLY that. When you
want a specific version check that out, but don't check out the top
level of the tree or the tags directory, that's a HUGE amount of data
you're putting on your local disk for no reason.
