There are definitely two semantics at work here (two entities with control
over delta delivery), but I can also see how we end up tying them together
anyways. For example, in svnlook.py, we usually return a NULL window
handler, but we also happen to know that that is going to happen when we
drive the editor. Therefore, we turn off delta generation when calling

Also note that this stuff will get wonked with the "change #6" where we flip
the control path in this. However, it doesn't seem like this change would
interfere with the API flip.

Dang. Where's that email about people not wanting the protocol to alter the
APIs in Subversion... hmm... :-) I also seem to recall a change to get
revnum info early (in a separate roundtrip(!)) because it couldn't happen
during a particular RA implementation's editor drive... :-)
