On the commit, we'd just send the fulltext if the text-base doesn't exist.
That one is actually very easy to do, and part of the reason that I wanted
to see the "apply_txdelta" stuff flip directions.

For the diff, we should simply be able to fetch the file from the server
when needed (dunno if we keep it or toss at the end of the operation, tho).
Note that "diff" needs to fetch files *anyways* to support diffing two
arbitrary revisions (which don't correspond to the WC).

Not sure how the diff stuff would work, but it should be manageable.

So in your .svnrc, you could have:

keep-pristine-copy = no

And you're set! :-)
