I had already read that (thanks). The question this brings to mind is that
if CVS can't store diffs of binary files (correct me if I'm wrong, but the
docs lead us to believe it just stores a whole new copy when new binary
versions are committed), why does it need to run a fancy diff that consumes
huge amounts of memory?

Or does it actually diff binaries correctly and only store the changes as
revisions are added (and we read the docs incorrectly)?
