Although I will not have the time to implement it, let me propose
something else: Similarly to pristine-tar apt could be enhanced to
download differences between Debian packages. This would at least make
users happier (there could be a limit, say packages >= 100MB get diffs).
Mirror updates would also be a lot faster (given they implement this),
only mirror storage would increase.
Just a thought
