And while I would argue that it's not necessarily intuitive to a CVS
user, it's more consistent overall. For new users, there's a nice
intuitiveness in using the same tree-delta terminology regardless of
network direction.

IMO, CVS checkouts are confusing: it says that each file is being
"updated" during a checkout:

U orbit7/gtkdial.c
U orbit7/gtkdial.h
U orbit7/orbit7.c
U orbit7/orbit7.h
U orbit7/orbit7gui.c

? Weird. I guess in the world of CVS, clients "add" things to the
repository, but servers only "update" things in the working copy --
even if they don't exist yet. :-)
