Well, I would argue that if the goal is ongoing archival and easy 
replication, then storing objects in a repository like git makes a lot 
more sense than keeping them on a central server that may or may not be 
there a few years down the line. Having large file support native in git 
is a laudable goal and I quite often wish that it existed.
