The performance will usually be significantly worse than with CVS.
E.g. if you do a "bzr log", it's likely that a lightweight checkout
accessing a remote repository over sftp will end up transfering the
entire history (e.g. 200MB for Emacs) over the network.
If you can access the repository over bzr+ssh, it might be a lot better
(a lot closer to cvs), but it's still likely to be slower than cvs, if
for nothing else that it's a discouraged usage.
