I'm curious to know if you timed the commit and update commands? In my
company, I bet most developers run a full checkout no more than once a month
but commit and update 1-10x per day. For the increased peace of mind that
comes with fsfs, I'm willing to live with twice as long checkout times. Most
of us work remotely so I think bandwidth is our bottleneck, not server I/O
or CPU.

As far as the lengthy hotcopy times, assuming the new copy is read-only,
have you considered using the new svnsync tool?
