that's true, though this is because partial uploads are not possible

I mean that you have no way to say for huge source packages : you only 
need to build this , this, this and this pacakge. since the changes 
I've made won't affect the others.

I know this raises practical problems (the worst of it not beeing able 
to construct the same packages that are on the archive when starting 
from source+diff). But if one day BW is critical, there is a path to 
explore here.
