Heh. I forgot to stick the ':)' in my first email.

Maybe it's just me, but why do you want to expose a manual interface for
optimizing the repository storage? Don't we have more important fish to

It's also not entirely clear that we know that such a thing is
necessary. I hadn't thought we'd done much performance analysis.
Contrary evidence is very welcome, but I don't recall seeing too much
about it on this list. However, I must admit that the traffic is
starting to get high enough that I can't read everything anymore.

Exposing a very complicated hammer to optimize a repository's
performance manually without doing some deep performance analysis first
makes me nervous.

Maybe this is another one of those: Bill, you missed a conversation
about this in one of the notes you accidentally didn't read. Or maybe
it's one of the things that you collab.net folks are talking internally
and forgot to let the list on what direction you guys were taking. If
so, please accept my apologies. I'm just trying to keep on top of
understanding what you guys are up to and still get my full time job
done of course. :)
