Subversion uses a pristine tree of files in the .svn directory.
Comparisons are done locally. This really means the speed of
subversion is dependent upon the speed of the underlying filesystem.
On fast filesystems subversion is really quite fast. But on slow
filesystems it can take a noticeable amount of time and svn seems

On my HP-UX filesystem this is pretty slow on a large number of files.
But on my Linux filesystem with the same project server and working
copy things are extremely fast. Of course this knowledge is probably
not a consolation if you happen to be working on a slow filesystem.
