Well, like changesets, but possibly optimized more for compactness and
fast random access to their contents, rather than human readability.
Perhaps this is just a different format of changeset?  Or perhaps using
them just as they now are would be a good first step.

I haven't reviewed the diff yet but from what I've seen so far of your
updated w-changesets it looks good to review for merge soon.  What do
you think?

(See also at this point Robert's mail last night about the requirements for
different storage formats)
