Sure deltas are quite usefull, too. OT: The recent approach is to 
automatically generate them within repo-add, right? So the uploader has no 
need to care about.

I still think it's still woth it. Patching makepkg/devtools shouldn't be that 
hard. And we don't need to chagne it tomorrow.

Also: if we'll have deltas we will need more disk space and traffic; using a 
better compression should help a little.
