Repository bloat.

I've commented on the past (on the user's mailing list) about small
commits (a few lines diff) causing svn repositories grow fast. For
example, in one of my repositories, a small commit made on certain
directory results on a 50+KB file on the svn repository (FSFS). The
directory contains almost 1000 files, and the problem is that the
revision file lists them several times.

Is this really needed? Is there any plan to fix it in the future?

The diff of the last 10 commits are about a few hundred lines, but the
revision files uses 500 KB, which seems a real waste.

Sample revision file attached.
