Doesn't gzip have a --rsync option, or somesuch? Apparently Andrew
Tridgell (Samba, Rsync) has a patch to do this, but I don't know
whether he passed it onto the gzip maintainers.
(Apparently he's working on a --fuzzy flag for matching rsyncs
between, say foo-1.0.deb and foo-1.1.deb. He says it should be
called the --debian flag.)
