Re: Reality of delta benefit

I'm not especially fond of the way CVS does merges into the working
directory, either. As you point out, it's not only that the
repository doesn't store everything you wish it did --- it's that the
working directory management is messy, too.

You're not the only one who has expressed a wish for a more coherent
way to manage merge participants than renaming the original to
`.#foo'. But unless Karl has surprises up his sleeve, I think we're
going to imitate CVS up to 1.0. Hopefully, we'll then have a decent
code base to experiment with other merge disciplines.

I think these issues are more important than the time complexity of
version retrieval.
