Fair enough. I just bring this up because it is all ready to go and has
been for a while. repo-add can add and remove deltas, pacman handles
them fine and there is even a clean-up script floating around to remove
deltas that are no longer reachable. So all it needs is a very minor
modification to the db-scripts to generate them on addition of a package
to the repos.
