Package patch


Now that we have package pools, how about this
for large packages say > 1 MB. Or offen downloaded
packages like libc6.

A patch file is included with the package. This
patch would update a package from the stable
version to unstable. But less downloading needed.

Some code would need to be added to check the
users CDROM and get the stable version. Then
download the patch and apply.

Would be great for modem users like me.

Cheers Rob.
