Okay, my repository is "just" about 120MB big yet, so I'll
have a try within next days.

BTW: what about compression ?

BTW#2: is there any way of saving space in the working copy,
eg. by kicking off seldomly used files in the back-copy ?
These files could be fetched on-demand (eg. on svn diff, etc).

The point is: I normally check out the whole tree, including
all tags (for convenience), but almost never change eg. tags.

A really cool thing would be having an svn filesystem, which
only presents what you're interested in (maybe the revisions
could also appear as subdirs, like in fossil) and really does
everything on-demand. It probably even would not need to have
double-copies of each file, since it directly sees the change
from the user.
