For arch's purposes, it is isomorphic to the kind of "binary diff"
that subversion uses (and for that matter, to every conceivable type
of diff algorithm).  It is rarely the most the disc space efficient way
of storing change but any changes to make arch use e.g. xdelta would
merely be an implementation detail and not affect the user experience
at all (except insofar as download times and archive storage space
would be decreased).
