Well, with knits I'm starting to bind my branches. And I'm finding it
doesn't work too bad.

Weave performance is *horrible* over a slow network. The biggest issue
still being inventory.weave. When I work from home and try to do a
regular push it takes *minutes* to push up a couple revisions. (Because
it had to download the 6MB inventory.weave, check it, and then upload
its own 6MB copy).

With rsync performance was *vastly* improved (though it didn't create
new directories with correct permissions on a shared branch). Seconds
instead of minutes.

Now with knits, things are much better. I still wouldn't bind over a
slow network, but pushing isn't nearly as painful.
