This is very interesting, but not really what I have in mind in this
case. I'm interested in cutting the bottom of the working repository to
maintain it below some given size (10GB, 20GB, 50GB, I don't know). As I
said, this is just an idea right now. I'll have to think further about
the advantages and consequences.
