I just asked again since the first discussion about this patch was
almost a year ago. And the prove of concept was some where last summer.
And there is now at least one working script which immediately allows to
profit from this patch (see "http://dpartialmirror.sourceforge.net/"). I
don't know about the other scripts but I think it's not difficult to
implement this functionality.
Besides with my script there is even now a little gain since not all
compressed files are completely different between versions.
PS. My script is now in the final stage and won't change anymore unless
there are any usefull comments.
