wound up with a repository copy that missed some updates and rsync is
slower and harder on the servers than cvsup I think.

cvsync is broken as it re-oders the cvs files so that they are incompatible with cvs (in some cases). cvsup does maintain a supfile, so the server doesn't have to scan the repo all the time, so that's less resource consuming that rsync, i agree. nevertheless I don't think it is a problem for servers to serve rsync. when I update my cvs tree from chlamydia, the server scans the tree faster than my local (faster) box, probably because the tree is already cached in memory.

I think the times for optimizing every last single bit to transfer or not are quite over (considering amounts of bandwidth wasted by spam).
