One thing to note that I've found in my use of Subversion is that during
the processing of the dumpfile or normal check-ins some extra space is
used in strings for delitification.

Temporarily the fulltext seems to make it in strings (I haven't checked
the code, but this is what I've seen in my strings file). So the strings
file may be large but some of that may be unused space that will be
reclaimed as the repository is modified.

I haven't played with it yet, but the deltified-dumps may be a good way to
judge how much space is lost due to BDB's keeping around free pages in the
strings file.

If this is the case then its more of a performance thing where BDB keeps
the space it needed at one point.
