Yup. Although there's work underway to actually make that kind of
storage more efficient, assuming that most files in the vendor drop
haven't changed: the rep-sharing branch already implements sharing of
content for unrelated, but content-wise-equal files. For BDB there are
some design problems with this issue which need tackling, but we think
we'll be sharing content for unrelated files in one of the post-1.5
