Forgive me if I'm spreading inaccurate information, but I believe that
the reason the deltify command of svnadmin has been reduced to a noop is
that deltify is now performed automatically on every commit. Thus every
revision is always deltified. I believe this has been the case since
v0.35 - see the CHANGES file.
