Heh, that's a good point. That's what I did just now, and it is
indeed a very large download. It can be handy to have local
copies of multiple branches if you want to do diffs and stuff,
but most people probably don't need every branch and tag ever
created. I'm sure just checking out the trunk is very similar
in speed to CVS.
