The difference between major releases might be too big, but it should really 
speed up testing if only a few chagnes are made.

And of course the overhead of up/downloading the img and iso images can be 

I just made a diff between archlinux-2009.02-RC2-core-i686.iso and 
archlinux-2009.02-RC2-core-i686.img. The resulting patch is only 1,2MB. (And 
yes, using the iso and that patch produces a img with the same md5sum)
