I want to note here that we are running with some special patches to
CVS, which I wrote, which make the common case of 'cvs update' to the
trunk quite a bit faster. In that case, our CVS, on the server, does
not need to open a file which is up to date on the client. This leads
to visible speed-ups for the client, and less load on the server.
But of course rsync is fine too.
