To avoid the same problem happening again, once you have checked out your
selected svn for myth, themes, and plugins, but *before* you do anything else,
consider tarballing the whole set of files up. That way, you can copy the
tarball to each machine and use that to install your systems. That saves
downloading the same svn several times, and ensures you have absolutely the same
set of software on all devices. It also gives you an archive [if,when] anything
