I've done some more digging and am still rather confused. I'm fairly sure
that the patch cache can have compressed files, and it seems that
inventories might be compressed too. What about pristine?
I also discovered that darcs optimize --compress ought to do much of
what's needed to do the fixing, but that http://bugs.darcs.net/issue1248
is a bit of a showstopper in that regard. I've bumped up its priority to
'urgent' on that basis and the general fact that it is a (local) repo
