Egads! I've been found out!

Have no fear... we don't really need that file, now that Joe has added some
new APIs to Neon. You may remember me talking about the whole push vs pull
in regards to the network and diffs and stuff. With the new Neon APIs and
flipping around apply_txdelta (change #6), then we can skip the temp file.

Oh... that's for an update. Hmm. (I was thinking "commit")

Okay... that file is for the "report" that we send to the server. I think
there was going to be an API for writing bits, rather than the whole thing.
I don't remember and will need to look at the Neon API again. I also had
some changes in mind for Neon that I volunteered for a couple months ago(!)
but Joe may have already done them. Anyway... I believe we may be able to
toss the file. If not, we may want to look at using SVN/tmp/ to hold it.
