Highly unlikely. :-)

Also not the case. Do an initial import of something, and use db_dump
to examine the strings table. On my machine, there is nary a single
chunk of svndiff data.

*Ding!* Subversion is using svndiff to *transmit* the text. Those diff
packages usually break down to:

   <flag that means 'here comes some new data'>
   <here's the whole file as fulltext>

but the fact remains that we are attempting to svndiff-ify a "delta"
that is effectively an "add" of the entire file.

And the repository is unpacking that stuff and storing the original
