No, it doesn't. All it stores in the repository is a little flag
saying, "This is a copy of path x at revision n". This doesn't take up
much space at all.

Where did you get the impression that it stores a full copy? Have you
run tests, and seen the repository grow? If so, could you tell us what
steps you ran, and where you saw the growth, so that people can look
into it and see if there's an underlying issue?

Thanks,
