One problem with SF.  Unless I'm missing something, there's no easy way
to get at the ,v files for your repo easily.  They don't support CVSup.
Which means that in order to do things like "cvs diff" you have to be
online.  This is a royal pain in the ass.  Even if you've got DSL or
similar, SF's servers are frequently so loaded that cvs commands take
ages to run (in my experience).

I've tried several times to get SF to fix this, to no avail.
