a `cvs -z9 up -dP`, right. the size of the cvs checkout (of the whole
contrib repos incl. themes, sandbox, translations, etc.) is 512,223,582
bytes (modules: 288,594,191), the generated doxygen documentation (incl.
.png's for uml diagrams and directory structures, indices, etc.)
348,937,647 bytes (modules: cannot tell because doxygen generates a flat
directory structure), the downloadable drupal-contrib-phpdoc.tgz
57,582,634 bytes, the error log 4,753,805 bytes. it takes doxygen about
30 minutes to generate the full documentation.

definitely - go ahead. curious about the load of api.module for the 
whole contrib repos.
