Re: Proposal: new fsfs.conf properties

I cannot find it in archives so maybe this happened in IRC, but I remember
one time suggesting we add a new versioned svn:XXX property to control
this. This could then be set by the client based on extension if desired.
I recall my suggestion was a compression on|off property that when turned
off would cause us to omit the deltification the client does when sending
to the server. If it makes sense for the server to do something similar
when it stores the file, great.

I suggested if we wanted to get really fancy we could also let the property
control the size of the window used when run xdelta or whatever we do. I
recall for some binary files if you have it a larger window it could do a
better job of compressing. I am no expert here I just recall this being
mentioned in the past as a tuning option that could make a difference. So
a property would be a way to expose that option.

I think the main use case though is to just disable it for files where
someone knows they would be better off just skipping deltification because
it is not going to reduce the size and just use a lot of time and CPU.
