When you do a "cvs update" automatically downloads only the the parts that need
to be changed. So if there are very few changes then it will be very fast, (the
more changes the more it has to download). Adding -z to the command compresses
the data stream so less data is sent over the network. 

If you have a dial up connection an update can take quite a while but any
broadband connection should be fast enough. 

I think we could replace steps 1-3 in the online documentation with something
like the following: 
1. Select which Repository we will use.

For Main CVS Repository:
export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvs at cvs.winehq.org:/home/wine

or European Reository:
export CVSROOT=:pserver:cvs at rhlx01.fht-esslingen.de:/home/wine

2. Check out the wine source tree.

cvs login      (password is cvs)
cvs -z 0 checkout wine
