Certainly... this is just about reclaiming disk space for very large file
revisions no longer needed. The references to the past revisions can stay
in the database. Attempting to check them out would yield an error message,
I suppose.

Anyway, while I would expect a Berkeley DB to be able to reclaim the space,
I'm not sure how the immutable FSFS revisions would work.
