Does this include darcs version info?  I've noticed that darcs generates
suspiciously large quantities of "context" info for very small patches (e.g.
~7000 lines of "context" for a ~700 line patch) -- for what I've seen so
far, the "context" section might be growing linearly with the file's

For what it's worth, I've got a "partial" tree that is ~64M in size, of
which version info is about 60%, and current source is about 40%.
