You're forgetting diff. If you use Subversion daily, you've become so
used to it being local that you can't appreciate how slow it would be
without locally cached pristine copies.

Anyway, this thread has gone way off any kind of reasonable topic. The
short answer to the original poster is that Subversion is not intended
to be a replacement for rsync. You can take that as a hint as to what
the solution to your problem might be.
