Karl spoke to the author of xdelta over a year ago. For some reason,
it wasn't a good fit for this project. IIRC, the xdelta code wasn't
librarized (the way our svndiff algorithm is), and the author had no
interest in doing so. He was only offering a complete xdelta-based
filesystem, which we didn't want. I may be remembering things
unfairly, though... maybe Karl can comment?
