I've noticed that cvsupping from ftp-master has been incredibly slow
lately.  I put a new 750G disk into ftp5, and (temporarily) tried to
add back some of the collections we've removed over the past few
years.  We're now finally getting the 7.0 BETA2 bits after I refused
all the package sets we hadn't been carrying before.
