Differential/Delta updates

    Implementing delta updates could significantly save time and bandwidth both for users and for the org.
    The most noticeable benefit would be for core updates: instead of downloading the 8310 KB install ZIP to update 4.7.1 to 4.7.2, just take the 530 KB changed files, and ZIP it to 114 KB.
    That's 8196 KB saving for the end user and if I calculate with 1 million downloads that's a whopping ‪8 TB (terabytes) bandwidth saving for the wp.org repo itself.
