It would go up much more than several hundreds of Kb, but that's not
the point.

I think we're having communication diffuculty here.  I'm not saying
that doing everything from source is for everyone.  It's obviously not
something you would like.  What I am saying is that for *some* people
it might be an *option* they'd like to have.  And for those people,
transmitting the source diffs could be a big win in bandwidth.  The
assumption here is that those people have the CPU horsepower and disk
space needed and don't mind using it for this.
