Since individual packages will be available for http, I guess we could
at least make jigdo files for the iso images available over http as
well.

Then mirrors won't be burdened in space by a multitude of content
duplication across even multiple sets packaged as installable media,
but people will still be able to obtain such media.  Although it will
burden mirrors with multiple rpm requests.  I'm not sure which would
they'd prefer...
