If we ever dusted off Dan Berlin's svndiff1 stuff, I think we would do
about as well as gzip spacewise. More importantly, though, would using
zlib actually be any faster than using self-compressed vdeltas, if the
goal is to speed things up?

svn_txdelta__insert_op is defifined in a separate source file. So
nothing using the normal Unix build process will do that, because the
information isn't available at the right time. (Unless you put off all
compilation until the linking phase, anyway.)
