Do you know whether there is currently delta based versioning for 
files of any kind in jackrabbit? Specifically, can text files and/or
any other non-binary file types be versioned as deltas in jackrabbit?
If not, might there be any plans to introduce this delta based 
versioning for text or other non-binary file types in the future?

Am I correct in understanding that this alternative way way of
storing blobs does not use deltas but rather just maintains a single 
copy of each unique blob and then uses pointer(s) to reference that 
single unique copy if a duplicate binary version of the file is 
entered into the repository?

Thanks again for your time.
