zsync for installer images

hi folks,

please note that this is a shameless plug since i am the maintainer of 
zsync and hope to attract more users and more testing with this.

anyway, i do think zsync could be quite usefull for the daily installer
images: it would produce very little computational and space overhead
and allow people to download these images with a fraction of the
bandwidth (if they already have an image, e.g. from yesterday). this in
turn could help testing the images, as it's not that much hassle to get
a new one.

zsync is in stable, and has been used with great results for cd images
before. if there is anything i can do to help implement this, holler. 

cu  robert
