Could be right. Checkouts are slower in Subversion than CVS. This is
unavoidable because Subversion does a lot more at checkout time than
CVS does. However, checkout is not an operation users are expected to
perform often. Users are expected to check out once, then use that
working copy for a long time. Most operations other than checkout
should be faster in Subversion than in CVS.
