No, it's used to compensate for overly "smart" server when there's no
win in being smart, because you need to send everything anyway.  The
"smart" part is for sending less data, which is not going to win for
the initial checkout.

The data ratio is 5.5:7.2, so it is indeed larger, but not awfully
so.  As for CPU, I wrote elsewhere that the client doesn't need too
much for the initial checkout.

I don't see that in my work.  Updates are of comparable speed,
although bzr indeed typically pulls more data through the wire.
