Do we know how many packages on average that would apply to, it seems to
me that unless this actually saves us bandwidth in general cases rather
than just OpenOffice.org (which is big and hideous by nature) then it
might not be worth it for anything but cool value.

Has this been tried on something like the FC6 updates? Additionally what
are the impacts client side of doing this, I assume a certain overhead
in stitching the packages together is present.

Aside that the idea sounds really neat and once it's ready for testing
I'd love to give it a go.
