Fair enough.

If I state my actual goals -- discarding old, uninteresting history,
in a "rolling" fashion? (periodically using a script that says "forget
anything older than one month") -- is there a better way?

The repository is not standalone, it receives pushes from hundreds of
clients, and gets pulled from a couple of clients. All clients are "in
sync", in that will be pulling every hour (vs a "time window" of one

At this stage, and with careful management (ie: custom gc scripts) git
