Feeds are certainly useful, but in this case I don't see how they
differ that much from doing an "svn update". You're right in that
feeds are probably much easier to cache, but it's still basically a
pull operation.

I recall complaints about some external CI systems putting too much
load on our Subversion server. I'm not sure what the exact nature of
the load is, but it seems clear that some guidelines would be useful.
