You mean that I'm _not_ joking?   Yes, that's right.   Seriously, by
the time you get to 100k revisions in a single development line, do
some archive cycling in there.

Not just for performance but also for administration and for user
convenience.   If you split up that line across a few archives you can
more easily put the first 90k revisions on read-only media, ignore
them during backup traversals, etc.    The output of commands like
`tla revisions -s' will be much more useful, etc.
