During the Indexing phase I was getting about 120-130kB/s downstream  
traffic and the Resolving phase ate one core of my Core Duo 1.83GHz  
(with 2GB ram, if that matters) for a minute or thereabouts. By  

$ time svn co svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/ffmpeg/trunk


real    0m23.950s
user    0m2.122s
sys     0m2.213s

And the resulting size of the checkouts:
git: 29,772,212 bytes
svn: 24,744,298 bytes

Though I think I am to understand that the git checkout contains the  
entire history, and the svn checkout does not, right?
