Never mind-- it turns out Gitlab ships with a "time-series monitoring
service" whose apparent job this week was to fill a folder named
"prometheus" with 40 gigabytes of data.

So we have the insane default of permanently saving every artifact on
every extant branch, and the insane default of shipping a data-miner
that apparently has no meaningful log size limit.

Please let me know the next time you see a 500 error for the repo,
because that will mean it's time to migrate to github.
