Correct, that's why I opened the bug report/feature request. :)

The last statement from Damien is that is to be considered because
a lot of people ask for it and it seems like a valuable addition (not
that we put in things just because a lot of people ask :-). There are a
bunch of issues with this, it obviously makes the compaction code more
complex and there are issues that need to be addressed when replicating
older revisions that might prove complex as well. Also, until there are
more pressing issues, like group reduce, 0.8, and possibly 1.0, we
focus on those.
