In fact, I'm using wireless 'broadband', which achieves about 50KB/sec,
but since its tariff is traffic based, I try to avoid 'large' downloads.
Do I need to write some sort of incremental upgrade downloader tool
downloading 2MB is a chore for people? I've been thinking about this
for a while.
The current download zipfile is 2492KB, whereas its zipped !RunImage is
1636KB. Assuming that nothing else has changed, an incremental upgrade
would save about one third of the download time/size (unless there is a
way of patching the !RunImage file). This would be helpful, but not as
large a difference as might be expected.
