This is untrue.

CVSNT will always store each change as a diff.

The current CVSNT 2.5.04 server has two diff types available:
* one 'optimised' for text files
* one 'optimised' for binary files (-kB)

Storing each change as a complete 'blob' on the server is not a feature
currently supproted by CVSNT.
