I normally only download and test packages that I use and/or are
important/popular, other updates are merely minor version bumps, and
sometimes I am bandwidth-constrained to download anything more than a
few megs.

But I hope I'm right that most of my packages are lean, in which case
downloading the packages and uploading only the sigs then won't be
much of a problem. And anyway, there was a time when there was no
pkgbuild.com and I had to build packages locally and on slow networks,
so I think I can manage.

In general, +1.
