The smart server works only if you have a Launchpad account and imported
a public ssh key there. Otherwise, it uses the http transport, the same
Savannah serves.

Using the smart server saves a few minutes (more if you are using a slow
machine).

I don't recommend a lightweight branch. The initial download is
something you need to do only once, and if you want to work on more than
one machine, you can clone your bzr branch from one to another without
downloading again from Savannah. Plus, most version control operations
on a lightweight branch over http are *very* slow, except perhaps
`update', which is about the same.
