I suppose that ideally you would apply the textdelta to a temporary
file in .svn/tmp and then write log entries to move it into place, I
don't know how hard that would be.

On a side issue, does this copyfrom stuff have a performance issue?
During a checkout none of the copyfrom sources are going to exist in
the working copy and yet rather than simply retrieve the final version
the code first retrieves an old version and then retrieves a delta.
In an environment where all development is done on branches it's
possible that all files will have copyfrom data.
