That doesn't help with files that change fundamentally; for example, a video
that's been resized, or an audio sample that's had its volume changed. These
are the types of revisions these files go through in the repository I'm using.

A property roughly saying "don't keep history" would be extremely useful,
and self-maintaining. I simply don't want versioning for certain files.
