I don't disagree that we need to maintain the history.

I do, however, question the policy that REQUIRES EVERYONE to maintain that 
much history.

The CPU's use L1, L2, MM, HD cache hierarchies.
The public libraries have a few months issues of a periodical in each branch 
library. They also have years of them in the main archives.

FreeBSD developers know a better way to manage information??? :-)
