Maybe something like the WinCvs graph commands "select non-significant" and
"delete (selected) revisions" automatically. That is, if there is a commit,
the previous revision gets automatically removed unless it is a branch
point or has a tag.

I guess the other option is to write a script that does exactly that and
run it on these files regularly (or on commit).
