I've learned to love this aspect of FileStorage.  Sure, the Data.fs is
measured in gigabytes, but when the users run to you crying "help! help!
why is this bit of data not what I expected it to be?" you can dig into
object history from a debugzope console and figure what changed it and
when.  Or restore deleted data, for that matter.
