For such simple scenario (users entering presumably short pieces of text
into text areas on a form) I'd not bother and would just store several
revisions of that message in a database table: I don't think you need
advanced features such as branching and delta-compression for storing
something as simple as this; I mean, the complexity of the tentative
soultion involving an SCM seems to not pay off.
