I think you are missing the point.  We have a flex-sdk repo right now.  Some
day it may expand to be 240MB of objects.  Then what?  New folks or new
machines will take 2.5 hours to download in Europe?

For SVN, don't have to checkout the entire whiteboard. I can set the "depth"
option to just get folders until I get to my folder then I can get
everything.  That, to me, is scalability.

That sounds more reasonable.  I don't think that would be against Apache
policy.  Let's see if our more experienced Apache members agree.
