	Can you try it with a -z and time it?  I would judge it to be
faster, since the -z should be more processor intensive, and the processor
on Hub is idle most of the time.  The -z would reduce bandwidth, though...

	As for the CVS control files...will look at it...but even then,
its going to take awhile to download, due to the overall size of the file
in question...
