If you're concerned about space don't change the revision numbering or
any log messages and external documentation will refer to the wrong
revision.

Keep in mind that if your changes are typically evolutionary rather
than revolutionary then the repository will not grow as much in later
revisions as they have in the early revisions.

And consider that the capability of available infrastructure will
improve as well so unless the repository growth out-paces this you may
not need to eliminate history to manage repository size.
