NFS and CIFS work just fine over the internet, though I admit you'd have
to be a bit of a masochist to try that.

Back to the original topic: Subversion's deltas are, for most practical
applications, quite a bit more efficient than sending tarballs of whole
files would be ... and the ZIP format is significantly less efficient
than compressed TAR.
