Before the developers give you more educated answers I'll point out that
the tofu database is a regular Sqlite database file. So you can do:

    $ sqlite3 ~/.gnupg/tofu.db

and then execute any SQL commands. Interesting SQL command could be
"vacuum" which, in Sqlite, basically dumps the the database as SQL text
commands, then deletes the database and finally reads the SQL dump
again. If you want to try that, make a copy of your tofu.db file first.
Then start Sqlite like the example line above and:

    sqlite> vacuum;
