I can't speak for Malcolm, but looking at the xdelta is something I've
definitely been meaning to check... I just haven't had time to get around to
it yet. However, If a BDB repo exhibited a problem with the svndiffs, I'd
expect that it would at error out with some sort of svndiff error. I haven't
really seen anything of the sort, which is why I've been focusing my
attention on FSFS.
