As I said in my previous response here, I think the reason for Paul to
go for curl+autoversioning is speed, because it eliminates client-side
deltification. It was suggested and demonstrated by Philip here:

But I'm wondering if that curl advantage won't dissapear if we develop
a solution for a normal svn client to skip deltification.
