[Xen-devel] motivation for sparse trees?

Hi, sorry if I've missed the explanation somewhere, but what's the motivation 
for keeping sparse trees for the OSs instead of full trees?

For PPC work, we've been using a full hg Linux tree, and it's made things very 
convenient to pull, merge, and diff work with upstream. In fact I think every 
Linux developer out there has multiple trees, even though they probably 
aren't modifying more than a dozen for any particular project. Any reason we 
don't do this with Xen development?
