Subject partial compaction?
Date Tue, 22 Dec 2009 18:38:18 GMT
I was thinking it would be cool to be able to specify some number of most
recent revisions to preserve during compaction. In some cases you only care
about e.g. the two most recent revisions of a document, and don't care about
the hundreds of older revisions that are just wasting space.

You could extend this idea by having compaction take an arbitrary predicate
function operating on old revisions to determine which are retained, but
maybe this needlessly complicates things.
