    e.g. is subversion using compression like rsync does when sending files?

Good question.  Sadly, using svnserve (which seemed like by far the best
choice to me), it seems the answer is no.  The word "compress" does not
appear in the sources, and the msgs I found online all say no.

I will see if I can get Staszek set up to try using svn+ssh, which can
support compression (since ssh does).  Then we can see if that will help
