I don't know if it's around for the latest release, but some time ago
there was a delta update system available.  Basically, many of the
updates only require small changes from the previously installed
version, so the delta update would only update the bits that changed,
rather than replace the entire old package with an entirely new package.

Someone might say if you can still do this.  It would help, enormously,
with keeping a system up to date over dialup.
