I might be wrong but from the time it takes to do a 'cvs up' in kdelibs 
compared with the time it takes for a much smaller cvs module I'd say 
(Warning: Uneducated guess) the load on the cvs server would be less if 
the modules are smaller. Partial checkouts work for you and me and 
would work for everybody else. But people with 160 GB hard disks will 
probably always make a complete checkout although they only need one or 
two apps.
