Seems there are still way more delta-rpms out there and quite huge
"drpms"-subdirectories out there on the mirrors.

Looking at the drpms-Dir listed by size:
And comparing that to the list of packages:

E.g. firefox has 4 normal rpm-Packages with about 47MB out there,
those 4 rpm-Packages result in 18 drpm-packages with each 41MB.

This remains a huge burden for drpms...
