files with large numbers of revisions

Hi,

Does svnserve slow down for files with large numbers of revisions ?

In the documentation
(http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/doc/user/svn-best-practices.html)
under the section "Be patient with large files" there is a description of
the svn client algorithm. This seems to imply that all the diff generation
is performed by the clients, leading to the conclusion that it is client
machine which would be the bottle neck in an svn system ?
Does the svn server perform any sigificant amount of work either generating
diffs or reconstructing files from deltas, either during an update or commit
?

Thanks
Rich
