Thanks a lot! Downloading individual packages is fine with me.
I'll see what I can do - pycurl will let me do the entire version check 
and upgrade through one or a handful persistent connections, that will 
remove delays that currently happen with small map subdirectories.

Filling the network bandwith should be easy then, unless md5 
calculations become the new limit. But that can be handled by storing 
the md5sums, so they only need to be calculated for new/updated files.
