Visual SourceSafe and Subversion both store use binary deltas. Subversion uses binary diffing for all files, both program text and binary files, such as graphics, etc. So repeatedly saving versions does not cause the size of the repository to balloon. Actually, Subversion would we worth looking at as an FM version control system.
