good to know.. But I just don't know why the repo dir grew by more than
a meg when I checked in a 500k exe.. and this 500k exe should hardly
have changed except for a few bytes.. unless the linker is just moving
everything around every compile.

If I tried to dump and filter the data.. do you think it's possible that
I could obliterate a file from some revision to the present by just
leaving out entries for the file greater than a given revision?

Yeah, I've considered this.. it's just nice that the others can check
out and get the latest and in their own directories.
