Just want to mention that if the server is running gitolite, the admin
can set things up so that this is easy and painless, either for all
repos or just some specific ones.

Such repos can then be cloned like this:

    rsync -P git@host:repo.bundle .
        # downloads a file called "<basename of repo>.bundle"; repeat as
        # needed till the whole thing is downloaded
    git clone repo.bundle repo
    cd repo
    git remote set-url origin git@host:repo
    git fetch origin    # and maybe git pull, etc. to freshen the clone

(yes, I know this is not really a substitute for resumable clone; call
it a stop-gap until that happens!)
