I thin Stefan was talking about this Summer of Code project:

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2007-03/0399.shtml

It was in fact implemented and never released. My recollection was
that a big problem was the one that Branko mentioned, that binary
deltas cannot simply be applied to any revision. So you could only
apply these patches to working copies that were the same or similar
revision as the one that created the patch. And of course they also
could not have been applied with a generic patch program either.

One would need to reach through the archives for the summer and fall
of 2007 to find all the details.
