Yes, I know. But unless you want to spend a lot of time trimming
recent packages from unnecessary files, and current code from unnecessary
cases, or backporting newly important cases and bug fixes (particularly
security related) to old code, you must just deal with the bloat.

More interesting would be to achieve what the CodaFS promised, namely
a way to cache locally all the files needed to survive while having
remotely everything that could ever be needed, accessible
when you're connected.
