I just had an idea. It might be a bad one, but here goes.

My repository consists of various source files and a lot of
binary data, and the pristine copies of these aren't really
necessary, unless you want to revert a lot.

The checksums would be enough to tell if the files have been
changed and need to be committed.

A downside would be that the client would have to send the
whole file when committing, though. Hmm.
