It adds a prefix to all the table names, so you can use a single 
database with multiple uses (if for example you're running the server on 
a machine you don't have the rights to create new databases on).

Of course you'd have to edit the script currently to make that work.

Personally I recommend switching the diff off (although it only stores 
the diff to text files not binary so it's not as bad as all that..).

Log messages aren't large normally, and it takes a lot for the database 
to get huge (the cvsnt.org database is 8mb and it's been running for a 
while now).  Plus, since it's sql you can easily come up with a script 
to prune it occasionally.
