I'll freely admit I don't always understand how the webgui for the CMS 
is doing it's magic.  But yes - depending on how you use it, the first 
time you edit a file using the webgui on a new source tree, it may need 
to complete a full checkout of that tree (on it's server), which might 
take a while before the build completes.

In most cases, after that, it uses the cached/previously checked out 
tree, so changes afterwards should be quick.

But this conversation does show a key "hidden" feature of the CMS: it 
makes site editing simple for everyone: both those who just want to 
tweak something while they're browsing a page, or for those who prefer 
the command line or are even just checking in interim files without 
looking to publish yet.

Thanks Joe!
