Certainly there is.

Note that I don't propose ditching svndiff0, or rendering older clients
incompatible with newer servers. The effect of completely removing
vdelta would be that in some situations, clients that don't support
svndiff1 would appear bit slower when talking to a new enough server,
whilst newer clients that do support svndiff1 would appear faster. Such
a trade-off is completely acceptable, IMHO.
