Dropping View Indexes

Ever have a database that was too big to email, ftp, or fit on a diskette, even
after you had compacted and zipped it? You may be able to recover even more
space by using 'compact -d' to drop view indexes during the compact process.
Since view indexes are not included in the copy or replication process,
creating a new replica or non-replica copy will have the same effect, but
compact -d is much faster.
