Correct, but if we give up on getting a working obliterate, we are
left with dump/filter/load as the only way to administer content.  And
as a practical matter, how many dump/filter/load cycles do you want to
do on repositories after they go over a few hundred gigs with all of
your development teams waiting for you to get the filters right to
match all the distributed cruft?    Also, in many cases over the years
whole projects become obsolete so getting rid of or archiving that
part would be easy if you had used the 'directory of repositories'
approach instead of 'repository of projects' and everything would have
worked about the same.
