Another issue is that dbscripts (the database scripts used for core / 
extra repos) don't use repo-add, even if there is a plan to do that.
(see http://www.archlinux.org/pipermail/pacman-dev/2008-January/010999.html)

But community already uses repo-add, so maybe once support is added to 
repo-add, it would be easy to get xdelta in community?
