CVS is 320 Mb, svn is 800 Mb.

And since off-line operation is important to you, that's the price you
pay to have an off-line diff. But you save quite a lot of time while
reviewing your changes before committing them.

Any such meta-information can be updated daily through a cron script
on Alioth and the result be stored in a real file within the repository
so that it's readily available during the build and no net-access is

Furthermore, we could vastly improve the usefulness of mindelta/maxdelta
if we decided to base it on percentage of original content that changed
instead of on number of changes.
