I don't know how we're less efficient. In the worst case, we take up
just as much space as storing both versions of the file.

IIRC, the binary diffs being stored in the repository are guaranteed
never to be bigger than the the original file. So if you make a small
change to a 10MB binary, and the resulting binary diff is >10MB, then
I believe the repository just stores the fulltext instead of the diff.
