That's actually something I really miss in cvsnt: an option to mark a file
so that the repository keeps only the last version (of all branches) and
possibly any tagged versions.

Reason is that sometimes I have large (binary) files in the project
structure that I need there and that I need to share with other developers
(or that I simply want there for backups), but for which I don't really
need a version history. Deleting the history manually is a pain.
