Perhaps a solution to this is have alternative back end
for tla: A plain old archive (e.g. tar,cpio) or sequence
of them. Then a commit could just add another to the
sequence. Efficiency would obviously not be great but
this would preserve the attractive dumbness of the 'server'
and therefore allow lots of caching techniques.

  c-b-v-b0.cpio, c-b-v-p1.cpio, ... c-b-v-cacherev14.cpio, c-b-v-p15.cpio ...
