Absolutely not: the repository uses all kinds of compression
techniques to store data as efficiently as possible (given some
computational limitations).

The working copy stores each file twice in order to support off-line
operation! BTW: normally you're supposed to check out only the part of
the working copy you're expected to work on (meaning that under normal
circumstances you're expected to have smaller checkouts).
