Yes, but some of us pay for every minute we're fetching from CVS...

Perhaps we should make it very clear to people that, *even if you have
the bandwidth*, you don't delete your copy of the CVS sources before
doing a checkout.

(Besides, if you're doing that then why aren't you fetching Jim Pick's 
tarball snapshots?  They're better compressed than CVS, and it'll save 
you and everyone else time...)

Alternatively, I don't suppose anyone has suitably-connected machines
we could use as further anoncvs mirrors?  (Especially in Europe ;-)
