Oh the new working copy format is absolutely great. The point is only
that the pristine files appear to build up over time, which seems new.
Any extra build up is removed with an svn cleanup, but I think a lot of
people (like me) will not realize they need to perform that step

I am actually in the process of doing an all-branches checkout right
now, to try and take advantage of the consolidation available in the
new working copy format. When using SSDs, disk usage matters.

If no one else replies within a few days, should I create an issue to
track this?
