it's just a list of hash-linked diffs between revisions
ITYM 'it's just a parent-linked tree of filesystem tree snapshots in a content-addressable store'.

(Sure, the *pack implementation* happens to be delta-compressed, but one of git's very nice features, shared with bzr as it happens, is that this is not visible to the user at all: the conceptual model and the storage mechanism are completely decoupled. Recently-added (loose) objects, note, are gzipped but not delta-compressed at all, but the user need not care.)
