With stable/testing/unstable/experimental it should end up around
there I think. Its 6-7G for the amd64 sarge debs so depending on
overlap you get more or less.

Before zsync looks into debs as well as gz files there won't be any
reasonable gain for debs and for the Packages/Sources files the diff
method works better. So for now there is no big gain and no strong
argument for adding zsync. But the potential is there for anyone
willing to invest some time and improve the code.
