We can reduce the download size by 50% by letting the ddts database decide
which translations are still up to date and pack only those into the
downloadable file. It won't be a .po file, but it will be smaller.

Also, an important point will be that the downloadable files be sorted, so
that you can diff them easily (I believe there is some effort going on to
make diffs from the Packages files).

I'm going to apply for a new job now, after that I'll take a more
extensive look into this.
