Went ahead and tried it myself also, here's my console log:

quintessa:GitHub grimlock$ git clone git://git.apache.org/flex.git
Cloning into 'flex'...
remote: Counting objects: 330636, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (87765/87765), done.
Receiving objects: 100% (330636/330636), 174.63 MiB | 364 KiB/s, done.
remote: Total 330636 (delta 238777), reused 325021 (delta 233243)
Resolving deltas: 100% (238777/238777), done.
quintessa:GitHub grimlock$ du -sh ./flex/
799M ./flex/

The download is 174.63 MB.
The /flex folder once checked out is 799M.

I also tried making some branches, it was instant.
Switching between branches, also instant.
These would be local branches.

Publishing branches back to the remote should also be fast, as it does not
reupload the entire branch fileset, Git is smarter than that.
