Are you concerned about increased seek times, Matthias? IIRC people like 
Attila Nagy mentioned from time to time that jigdo thrashed their disks a 
bit more than regular .iso downloads.

IIRC jigdoofus uncompressed the data on the fly, which made it a bit slow, 

What's the right solution to cache the data from the .template file? Write 
the pieces to disk uncompressed? Re-compress them with something like LZO?

Hmm, a FastCGI solution would also be possible for serving the files via 
HTTP (but not BitTorrent). I'm tempted...
