Hey, don't worry about it. I was just mailing to see if you had
something ready -- since you don't, we'll just start from where we
were, no problem.

I think it's okay to sacrifice some performance in order to get this
up and running. The immediate priority is that *storage* be
deltified. Beyond that, making retrieval of deltified revisions
efficient (esp in terms of memory usage) is good, but not worth
delaying M3 for, imho. The interfaces are clean, so improvements on
the back end are always going to be possible.

Okay, enough talk, just needed to know where you were. I'm off
into code now. :-)
