Yeah, it's easy to see that deltas for -updates and -updates-testing[1]
from the release and probably the last update make sense[2].  rawhide is
definitely the trickier to figure out where to draw the line.

The more I think about it, the more I think we want it integrated kind
of similar to how the signing works -- koji plays a role but is driven
with external info to know what to create deltas for.  The deltas are
then associated with a given nevra of a package and stored along side
them.  Then, when we mash a tree (be it updates or rawhide), there's
policy to get the appropriate deltas given the policy and koji generates
them behind the scenes if needed.

[1] Arguably, the answer is to do deltas for foo-1 -> foo-2, foo-2 ->
foo-3, foo-3 -> foo-4 and foo-1 -> foo-4.  The last can be generated
from just combining the earlier three for convenience of the entirely
not updated user.
