This was a concern for me too since I've recently started supping
myself. I have a 288 to and it does just fine.
When you install the tarballs the dates will be restored also, so when
you do your first sup, SUP will compare the dates in the repository to
your existing source tree. It will then only pull the changes since the
tarballs were created.
It's actually quite cool. SUP is definitely the way to go
