I don't believe cvsup is slow. Well, at least it's not slower than
Gentoo's emerge (rsync based AFAIK) or OpenBSD's way of just using
anonCVS via ssh.
However, cvsup _is_ insecure and I don't like that it's based on
modula3. I really have no program which uses m3 apart from CVSUP.
So, well, perhaps portsnap is a nice replacement. Who knows ? :)
