You could do a cvs update if you have the source tree that you have
checked-out before. So, when you do a checkout be sure to keep the
tree that you get. Then you can just do a cvs update instead of a
checkout. Save those expenses; I understand.
FWIW, you still don't need a local repository to do this. Of course,
you may very well want your local repository for other things.
Have fun =)
