#3 and #4 are both moderately pink herrings. The problem with
compression and deltification on the server (for in-repository storage)
is that it's currently done synchronously at transaction-commit time.
There are good reasons to change that to asynchronous post-processing,
possibly as part of 'svnadmin pack'.
