Okay, on reflection, I think I know what the best fix would be: when
using ra_local, always transmit plaintext. It doesn't matter what we're
diffing against; even if we're doing a real diff and not just a
self-compression, it's still wasted time.

Of course, this presents a layering problem. I think we want a function
in the ra layer which returns true if the ra layer thinks bandwidth is
precious and if not; we pass this flag, in turn, to the wc crawler so
that it can decide whether or not to send diffy or plaintext file
deltas.
