application ill-suited for svn?

We've been using svn and trac for a number of development projects.
When it came time to build a content management system, we felt that
with its webdav support and easily implement hooks, svn would be a
good repository for all of our content. We created a new empty
repository on the same redhat box that hosts our development
repositories and trac. Unfortunately we didn't consider how repository
level versioning (which has no benefit in this application) would
inflate the db size. Some 6000 files, each only a few kb in size, and
62000 revisions later, our /db/revs dir is about 19gb in size and
growing almost 1gb daily. We never have multiple file commits.

Did we just pick the wrong version control app for our needs? Is there
something we can do to compact the db or decrease the rate at which it
grows? Does anyone have suggestions for another app that does file
level versioning and supports webdav and hook scripts?
