Not quite :) What if I "type" in a video editor and save a changed
600mb .avi file? We should record input instead of changed data, but
that's way out of scope for a versioning filesystem.

Thinking of a prototype, I like the ease of use of bzr, do some of you
know if it can host non-linear revision trees in a single directory,
allowing to switch from one to another using tags?  I tried git and it
does it easily, but git does not seem to handle directories (e.g. adding
an empty directory seems to have no effect).
