I guess cvs is slower because it needs to check for local diffs
before/while merging in changes.  By contrast cvsup will just blow
away any changes you have made.

Yay! I set up a local cvsupd and it now takes under
10 seconds to update any branch, as compared to
5-7 minutes cvs took.

There's probably not much you can do apart from not checking out full
trees unless you really need them.

You see, I use different branches in jails and on
boxes, so it makes sense to get the whole repo over
the net and sync to the branches locally.
