Yes, it is 'load', but filtering is the complicated part:
That is currently the only way to remove things from the repository. If
you only commit text that developers are typing, the repository will
grow fairly slowly because the revisions are stored as efficient deltas.
  If you are adding a lot of binary data that changes with each revision
it will grow a lot faster.
