Actually, even the most recent stuff is compressed. It just might not be deltified in terms of other blobs (which is what you meant, I know).

yes, everything stored in git is compressed, but it only gets deltafied when it gets packed.

and it's frequently faster to read a compressed file and uncompress it than it is to read the uncompressed equivalent (especially for highly compressible text like code or logs), I've done benchmarks on this within the last year or so
