The first checkout!  It is a horror to extract emacs anyway, but
having such extreme file sizes as the elc.tgz archive sucks.

I'm sitting behind a (sometimes unreliable) 28.8k modem...

Isn't the idea of CVS to always have up-to-date files?  Conserving
outdated tgz files there is really nonsense IMHO.

I rather suggest to use a tool like xdelta to create diffs between my
suggested elc-archive -- instead of some MByte, the binary diffs only
have some kByte.
