Hmm, I might have to reconsider on this one.  arch's patching might
be slower than a cvs update, but a larch get seems to be faster than
a cvs checkout.  At least with arch, I've switched to a model where I check
out the latest source in a temporary directory in order to a day's work.
With cvs, I always kept project trees around because a full checkout
would be so slow.

This should probably be actually measured :-)
