I installed RT 3.8.7 on a test server and loaded the database with a dump 
from my production instance of RT (version 3.6.7).  I then went through 
the listed procedures to update the database for 3.8.7.  A dump of the 
resulting database is about 9.5 megabytes whereas the old database dump is 
about 13 megabytes.  I've gone through the new setup and everything seems 
to be in place and functioning correctly.  What could explain this 
decrease in size?  Compression that wasn't done in 3.6.x?
