There are other choices than streaming on or streaming off, though. For
instance, you could compress deltas ahead of time. I'm not a Core dev
so I don't have to make choices about the tradeoffs involved here :-)
but I want to let people know that there are sourceforge-like setups
where having to choose between on the fly bz2 compression or no
compression would both be bad options.
Before gnome.org switched to svn they had a request for devs to use cvs
-z3 instead of -z9 since that was judged to be the sweet spot in
compression vs CPU usage.
