Sean, 7 minutes doesn't sound bad. Keep in mind that with Hg, the whole
repository is being cloned to your computer - all active (and inactive)
branches, all history, etc. The up-side is that after this initial clone,
subsequent pulls are pretty quick and all other operations are local and
super fast (log, blame, etc.)
