It means that Subversion increases the speed (by eliminating the need
for client/server communication) of common operations like svn status
and svn diff by storing a pristine copy of the last revision that you
updated to locally. Thus all operations which can be handled without
going to the server are (handled without going to the server).

The cost of this elimination of client/server traffic is that your local
copy will be twice as big as it would be in a CVS checkout.
