Sorry, diffs are simply silly! Use rsync with the uncompressed Packages
file and diffs aren't necessary. Or use a packer which doesn't hinder
rsync from saving (gzip --rsyncable).
If you really care about bandwide, build a local mirror with my download
script (option -A) and see that apt accesses the local mirror first when
updating. I dare to assert that this is currently by far the best
solution for saving bandwide.
