    That's a _guess_.

    It would take days.

    No. The CVS archive is going to be almost the same size. BKCVS gets about
    98% of all the data. It just doesn't show the complex merge graphs, but
    those are "small" in comparison.

    I think it's entirely reasonable, yes. But I may be off by an order of
    magnitude. I based the 3GB on estimating form the sparse tree, but I
    wasn't being too careful. Andrew estimated 2GB per year (at our current
    historical rate of changes) based on my merge with him. So it's in that
    general range of 3-6GB, I htink.
