I didn't get the OP, but I just wanted to respond to this. This is true if
you use only checkout/update and commit or have a fast and low-latency
connection to the server. It is not true the moment you want to use diffs
regularly, with a not-so-good connection to the server. 

Try working with a server where the connection is not so good: slow and/or
high latency. I'm sure you quickly realize that you very much would like to
have a mirror closer to you. Putting the single server closer to your
location wouldn't help, though, because then the people in the other
location would be in that position. So... ?
