My comments are about the same as on IRC:
- Disk space is cheap, bandwidth is cheap.
- CPU doesn't grow nearly as fast as those three.
- Human power grows even slower.
- The administrative overhead of transitioning to a new .deb format
would be huge.
Thus, anything sacrificing lots of human power and CPU power to save on disk
or bandwidth just doesn't make sense.
