Try it, I insist.

Actually, I don't, but your argument is pointless.
First: If there's no changes, my script takes 0 minutes. :)
Second: Independent of how fast/slow your cvs server/client is, if not
all dirs were changed, it will be faster.

Since this is a rather pointless discussion, I'll try to let this be
my last mail in this thread.
