If we want this to be sustainable in the long term, it would be
excellent if there were a way to shrink/regraft at a later date, so that
we can ditch checkins from say > 6 months ago, or when the size exceeds
a certain amount.

If this is only for devs, then I guess they can do it manually, but if
we're ever going to contemplate moving to git instead of rsync for
normal use, then we should think now about whether we can shrink the
repo automatically without necessarily tossing out their old tree.  Do
we know if that's possible at the moment?
