I don't think that this is rocket science which requires testing. :-)
 Of course, if you just insert new data directly into the stream
without trying to deltify it, it's gonna be way way faster.

What's tricky here is coming up with a design. Should the svn client
be magically deciding when to deltify or not, based on some heuristic?
 Or should it be controlled by the user via switches or
config-options? We have a really long standing issue filed (like...
years old) about giving users the option to toggle compression on the
fly (something akin to 'cvs -zN'). Is that the interface we want?
