Note that I'm not going to respond to each of your responses to me.
You're clearly correct where I erred, and I'm happy with the changes
you've made :-)

Ben and I discuss this example in our Best Practices talk: If you
have a repository with source code (tiny) and Photoshop files (huge),
it's just easier to juggle the small stuff separately--from syncing to
backing up to whatever, you don't have to worry about these huge
blobs. Heck, if you've got just source in a repository, you can
probably do a full repository backup every 12 hours...
