Re checkout, this is no surprise (though our own measurements only had
Subversion 2 or at most 3 times slower).

Subversion's updating is optimized a bit more for network usage, so
your test results (run with local repository) are not as outrageous as
I at first thought. What happens when you try it over a network? Or
is local repository access a normal configuration for your shop
anyway?
