I'm not sure how you'd know when to do add_file and when to do
open_file. You could grab a recursive directory listing first, but I'm
not certain how you could ensure that the directory listing is of the
same rev you're committing against.

If the delta is computed against the empty stream, it should work
regardless of what the server applies it to.
