I believe this to be untrue. IIRC, the new fulltext is squirreled
away in a tempfile so that a) a user who has left a to-be-committed
file open in his editor doesn't accidentally change the file while
deltas are being calculated later, and b) so it can be installed as
the new pristine copy. Deltas are generated streamily and never land
on the disk.
