Bug Description

I did an export of a remote branch to a local directory and the result was that bzr downloaded about 80Mb of data (seen in the progress status of the command's output) and the local directory had 30Mb after the process was completed.

Version is bzr-2.1.1-1 and the remote repository was lp:~landscape/landscape/trunk

I'll note that 'bzr export' uses direct VFS requests, which should
probably be changed to be an RPC.

Andrew's recent work to have an RPC for "give me all the text content for revision X" could also be useful here. When we look through it, we should at least consider whether something like this could be re-used.

This will be fixed when 2.5b5 hits LP.
