Some devil's advocate questions/comments:

How would a new user ever find out, let alone be shocked?

Enabling it for files over a certain size doesn't help much, because
it turns off the feature precisely where it would help the most.
Making it a boolean config option (either deltify always, or not at
all) might be a better way.

If Mike's results are representative, the logfile penalty we're paying
for deltification outweights the space savings.
