I can't think of a reason why there would be an optimum direction as
far as the cost of the operation goes. But the optimum direction for
the *result* is to go forward in time (the same order in which commits

No fulltexts are created as a result of deltification.

That's interesting ... I wonder why. Oh! If you go backwards, you
have to first *undeltify* your "against" nodes so you can deltify your
target nodes. In the opposite direction, your "against" nodes are
always fulltexts. That makes sense. And, fortunately, is the best
direction for later undeltification anyway.
