Diffy Storage

hi!

http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/17/svn-design.html#Diffy%20St
orage

"... It doesn't make complete copies of nodes; instead, it stores the
_latest_
 revision as a full text, and previous revisions as a succession of reverse
 diffs ..."

a quick look into db/revs of one of my fsfs repositories showed, that the
_latest_ db file does not contain full text, so i wonder if i'm getting
something wrong here.

could someone please explain 'diffy storage' more in-depth?
