This is the first I've heard about reposity level versioning inflating
the db size. Could you elaborate? If I did my math right (19,000,000kb
/ 62,000 revs) you're averaging about 300kb per commit. That does seem
high to me. And if you're growing at 1gb/day that means you're getting
roughly 3,300 commits/day. That sound about right?

I'm wondering if you could remove older revisions periodically? The
dump file outputs revisions in date order but I don't know if you
could chop off, say, the first 20,000 revisions without borking the
resulting loaded repo or not. Anyone tried this?
