There are many situations where the extra pristine copies are
inconvenient, particularly when working with tools that like to do
recursive things - and as CVS demonstrates they are unnecessary. I'd
like to see an option for SVN to not use them. If you are on a
reasonable network the bandwidth savings from sending diffs in commits
won't matter (and you may have workspaces where you don't make any
changes anyway) and the concept of offline work is meaningless.
