Bear in mind that the client sends diffs to the server, so the file
size doesn't directly translate into network traffic.

What alternative would you suggest? That the metadata go first, then
some hooks get the chance to run, then the content get sent and other
hooks get the chance to run? I don't think that the number of cases
where that particular optimization would pay off is worth the ongoing
maintenance costs. It would also, I believe, increase the size of
the window during which conflicts could happen, and so have a
detrimental effect on heavy hit repositories.
