That's the one piece I am not 100% sure of; Subversion's internal
storage involves a combinations of deltas, skip-deltas, and fulltext
forms, the details of which have never penetrated my poor head. I _do_
know that prior to any change, the sole contents of a branched file in
the repository is a pointer to the old file and nothing more.
