You may find your belief to be mistaken -- I can't think of any reason
to expect CVS to be faster than SCCS, unless you plan to switch from NFS
access to CVS's client/server mode (which I would strongly advise -- we
have had lots of reports of repository corruption caused by NFS
interoperability problems).
