As someone who's been using rawhide for years I'd hate it if I had to
track all those small package bits. The joy of an rpm system is that
package units are self-contained (not some sort of patch layer
sedimentation impossible to process by a human being).

Whatever delta comparison goes on should be done at the download
protocol layer (rsync...) not at the package level.
