I like this page.

Would it be a performance problem to additionally provide some numbers on
branch versions, updated once per day? This may include size, number of
revisions and last modified time. Just an idea.

The search form is useful. Adding thisform to the stats/archivestats.html
page directly may probably help.

I believe that the best solution is the smart library, the one that keeps
the recently accessed revisions and removes the less requested ones.
Smart cache is a very good solution too, it is easier to implement and
it is faster, however it may require more disk space.

I planned to have both of these smart configurable features in ArchZoom
after most of the non-smart features are in place. It may take several
weeks, depending on the number of contributors. :)
