Well, initially it will be a lot more, yes, but if you plan to do
any work (cvs diff, cvs log, etc), cvsup it's a _lot_ faster/smarter
on updates. So the idea is to:
  1. Use cvsup to duplicate the entire repository on your box
     (cvsup is very smart about keeping this up to date)
  2. Check out your local copy from this private repository.

You just need to monitor the wine-cvs list (which all developers
should do anyway) for when to run cvsup to update your local repository.
