bzr:// vz nosmart+bzr://

Maybe you know, maybe you don't, but the bzr server on savannah was
upgraded to the latest version 2.4 a few days ago.  As result of this
(or maybe as result of some other changes on savannah), the initial
"bzr branch" command became approximately twice faster than it was
before.  It takes about 18 min on a gnu.org machine (probably on the
same LAN), and 1 hour on a very remote machine.

What's also important, it seems to be no longer true that using the
nosmart+bzr:// protocol for the initial "bzr branch" is faster than
the normal "smart" bzr://.  In fact, nosmart+bzr:// seems to be about
30% _slower_ now.

Would people please time the following 2 commands and see if this
observation is correct in general?  If it is, I'd like to update the
instructions on the wiki, because describing 2 different protocols
there might unnecessarily confuse new users.

  bzr branch nosmart+bzr://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/emacs/trunk/
  bzr branch bzr://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/emacs/trunk/

Please note that this should be done outside of the directory where
you have the Emacs bzr repository, i.e. where you typed the original
"bzr init-repo" command (should be the parent of the `trunk' directory
if you were following the instructions on the wiki).  Otherwise, bzr
will not bring stuff from the remote server, but rather reuse what it
already has in the repository.
