A working copy keeps unmodified copies of all the files, so a working
copy requires 2x the disk space of the files checked out into the
working copy. Having the unmodified copies available locally means
that Subversion can do many operations (status, diff, revert) by
consulting the local copy and thus avoiding the network access that CVS
is forced to do. This is often faster and also allows these operations
even when not connected to any network at all.
