Peter,

Thanks for your clear and informative answer. I'm afraid this is one
of those things that needs a deep redesign to be fixed, so no hope for
change soon.

It's a bad bad thing that a commit causes a repository grow that is
proportional to the number of files of (part of) the working copy. I
see some of my repositories jumping in the multi-gigabyte zone on a
matter of months.

Regards,
