So I gathered, after making that hasty remark. I had assumed that it
was small relative to, say, downloading binary ISOs (since my a-priori
assumption is that all you pull down is source tarballs as required and
occasional updates to whatever is like the BSD ports skeleton) -- but I
infer that for whatever reason it's a bandwidth hog.
