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...
