There is an issue with the FAT filesystem that it only stores times to the nearest 2 seconds which
means that files can appear to Subversion to have changed (the dates don't match) and Subversion
then falls back on doing a diff against the pristine copy. Basically this means that you may find
svn status to be rather slow on your checkout. You would be better off checking out onto a 'proper'
filesystem and then taring or zipping it into a file on the memory stick.
