Pristine copy disable option

Hi, first of all, amazing job with SVN, it's the best repository tool so far.    I wanted to make a suggestion to make it even better. I understand the role of the pristine copy, it helps a lot, specially if a revert is needed, no need to redownload the files, the revert will extract the required files from the pristine copy.    However there are cases where the pristine copy can be a pain, since it duplicates the size a checkout takes in the hard drive. What if an option existed to disable the pristine copy? Hashes of the files on a revision would be saved rather than a copy of the files, that way it's still easy to determine which files have been changed without haven to keep a duplicate. If a revert is needed, the a download of the changed files would be done at the moment.
