"svn checkout is slow" is not the same as "subversion is slow".

Some operations will be slower than CVS, others (say, diff) will be
faster. Checkouts are slower than CVS's, usually. Obviously, we'd
prefer for checkouts to be faster, but it hasn't been our highest
priority either, since it's not a common operation for most people.

I'm kind of surprised that commits are slower; updates I'm not sure.
We'd have to see comparisons of same client/server hardware, same
operations, I guess.
