Are there repositories out there which regularly prune history due to
size concerns? I haven't seen a single public repository doing that,
even with systems where this is somewhat easier than with Subversion.

On the other hand, if you could prune history easily, you'd open up
many additional scenarios (using Subversion as a replacement for an
ordinary distributed file system etc.). But such applications aren't
typically in the focus of version control systems.
