cvsup'ing the cvs repository usually takes 10 minutes or less per 
night.  This changes when a tag is laid down, but is quite handleable 
- especially if you do it via a cron job at night.

The big thing is actually getting around to sitting down and setting 
it up (it took me months to pluck up the courage the first time).
