Ok, just FYI. We've been having some weird problems with our scripts creating
.foo files in random places in the experimental directory. I just freed up about
4G worth of space because of this. I'm going to try and watch to make sure those
files don't creep back into the directories. I hope that helps some of you!

And, we will be still moving stuff to historical soon so that will free up a lot
of space for you guys! Sorry its been getting so big lately.
