CVS is damn slow. On every cvs up it should stat *all* files and cvs 
entryes
in current state its ~212k files in gentoo-x86. It will be sloow on 
every machine unless you put all this files in ram

Actual number of usefull files is only about ~60k 
(ebuilds,eclasses,metadata.xml,patches)

Its comparable to linux kernel git tree ~42k files

And yes git is much more faster.

PS  if ibm s/360 was good for my grandfather why we all use modern 
intel pc? Lets stay under 1 MIPS machines like s/360
