Binary diffs and largefiles

Hi,

I've been doing a little research on binary diffing and patching and I was
wondering if this was something that made sense for largefiles and how
binaries are stored.

Of course, diffing does not imply the ability to merge in this context
(AFAIK), but I think it could be a way to optimize on storage requirements
for linear changes on binaries.

What do you think?

Regards,

David
