Actually, csup is much more efficient than rsync because it can
cache the meta information and so doesn't have to perform a stat()
on each file. That doesn't matter so much on the client (compare
plain csup vs. csup -s), but it is quite significant on the server.
And anon cvs is just an enormous hog on the server side.
