[DD] Read this old thread [1], I get the impression that git supports
deltas both during network transfers, and in the remote repo, but
chooses performance by default over disk-space, by keeping full copies
of files. But git does support delta-compression, even across "files"
apparently. So I guess it's more the matter of DCVS' in general
forcing you to get the whole repos, that is the main drawback of
storing large files in them. But I'm definitely out of my depth here,
so I'll stop here :). --DD
