It doesn't do a delete-then-add, but it also doesn't even check the contents of
the existing rev in the repository. Technically, it will store the new revision
as a delta against the previous one, but there is no requirement that the files
be in any way similar. That's what makes it so dangers; it just stomps on
whatever is in the repository at that path (so you could easily overwrite the
wrong file).
