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 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.
