Yes, definitely, this is a very worthy project. I have an
implementation of the delta algorithm ready and waiting in llvm/ADT,
and have bits and pieces of a Clang based delta lying around on my
hard drive, but nothing concrete enough to be worth checking in. If
someone else wanted to work on this it would make me very happy. :)
