Not so unintrusive, but would it be acceptable if we merge all .sqlite 
DBs from all repos in a single .sqlite with tree-like schema? Let say we 
achieve overall size reduction by factor of 4, at the price of more 
complicated but faster SQL queries. [I hope that such a change will also 
make the incremental by the XML sources easier]

I am going to experiment this, if make sense ...
