Alternatively (and Tom has suggested this, I think), build a revision
library around something that uses xdelta (a Subversion repository
seems like a suitable start), and then build an implementation of Arch
around that (presumably you'd want a smart server that could construct
and accept Arch patches, for example, so you could do merging using
more or less existing code).
