Unfortunately some of us (without broadband) can neither checkout
all of src, nor download large files (eg the 56Mb gnu.tar.gz)
without having to redial at least once.

Ok it is possible to use ftp clients that will continue a download,
but OTOH 'cvs update' will eventually work - provided it has the
correct (small) directory structure to work with.

Unfortunately a checkout of 'src' doesn't generate all of this
soon enough.....
