But in the context of source-code it's obviosuy true. Not nessecarily so for all other contexts.
Source-code is *very* small and *very* compressible in relation to how much work it takes to produce it. If you invest a million dollars in developing some software over a year. *ALL* revisions of *ALL* files can still be stored, completely uncompressed for a storage-cost in the pennies-range.
There ain't anyone seriously working on Kernel-development that has a problem storing 10 or 100GB in order to do so efficiently. And hardisks are less than a dollar/GB.
