To be fair, I think he was really suggesting to optimize for `tla get'
on very old archives (so many things have been suggested, though, it's a
bit hard to keep track!).

I think the general idea of glomming together dusty old sequences of
changesets into more-space-efficient-but-slower bundles is nice though;
maybe it would be the sort of thing you could do after moving to a new
archive (well probably a couple of months later, actually).  I see no
reason to discard context info though, it could just use some special
representation to store it more efficiently.

Next to fried food, the South has suffered most from oratory.
