The entire history of the Linux kernel since switching to git 5 years
ago is stored in a repo that is *less than half the size* of a single
current checkout.

The entire history of the XFree86 project ended up being a repo that was
only 2-3 times the size of the current checkout.

Seriously, don't be afraid of git simply because "it has all the
history".  SVN is already worse because it has a single local backup
copy for every live file, 2x right there.
