svn disk usage

Hi folks,

i'm heavily using svn w/ fs backend and lots of small commits
and like to reduce the disk usage some bit. As (IMHO) each commit
produces one extra file, which - depending on fs granularity -
can waste a lot of space (think of a million 1k commits on an
4k-block ext2). Is there any suitable way to fix this ?

An idea would be using an compressed filesystem like fuse-compress,
but if this one doesnt put multiple tiny files into one disk file,
this wouldn't help at that point.

Another idea would be using venti instead of the filesystem.
(just one mapping table between revisions and venti key on the fs).
Anyone already considered that ?
