The problem with that method is the high startup cost and the large
amount of waste

 * I have to do a full rsync of all the repos I'll be using
 * there will be a lot of files that I neither want nor need (all of
gnome for example)

I've used this method before, on campus, and even on their fairly
large pipe, the initial rsync of just the main repo (not considering
livna, etc) took quite some time and a lot of hdd space (even with the
proper excludes)
