Is this a question?  I'm pretty sure that, in addition to speed ups because
of more revisions, using ssh-based checkouts or svn:// based checkout would
also make things faster.

I still think that we can extend tools around archrelease and archco to
make changes on a mass scale.  They wouldn't be used as often, but would be
available when we needed them.
