That would certainly account for it.

Most files in our existing RCS repository will have 5-6 branches off the
trunk (each branch mostly containing just a single revision with only a
$Id$/$Log$ change). In the RCS files, I believe these are stored as
deltas from the trunk branch point.

If, in subversion (at least as built by cvs2scn), each such branch is
duplicating the whole file, that would give a big expansion.
