Hundreds, maybe. What's wrong with that? Do you have that limited inode
space? Fedora (since FC3 IIRC) by default gives you indexed directories
on ext3, so big dirs are not a problem anymore, right?

Updates are not one big file, it's a collection of packages. Deltas
would bring 3 times as much files (full rpm, delta from GA, delta from
previous version), but can save your bandwidth by a factor of 10. Isn't
it worth few wasted inodes?
