I was annoyed by this a few months ago when the file was only 10MB.

Use CTM on slow links :-).

This seems to be inherent in the file format.  Binary data is expanded
by a factor of 4 due to encoding it as a C array.  Even tiny changes
in the data ripple through the array and give huge diffs.  Uuencoding
the data would only expand it by a factor of 1.4 although it would
have the same problem with the diffs.
