33000 patches (half of which are tags) for a total of 220M patches
(compressed).  18000 files and directories for a total (according to du
-sh, which I think rounds up to block size on each file) of 215M.

My machine is a 700MHz PIII.

In defense of darcs' speed, about half the time was spent in cvsps... and
in defense of cvs, my conversion script didn't try to be very clever, is
just asked for patches between each changeset... and it asked about each
changeset twice, once to get the comments/author/etc and once to get the
actual changes.
