Is there a good reason why minor source revisions are not posted to 
the ftp mirrors as unified diff patchfiles?  I mean, both 7.4.0 and
7.4.1 were nearly 10MB in size as bz2 archives.  That's a 40 minute
download per file for a 56kb modem connection.  Whereas, I created a 
bz2 patchfile from 7.4.0 to 7.4.1 that was a mere 100KB: 1% that size.

My suggestion:

post minor revision changes as unified diff patchfiles 
on the mirror sites.  The sourcecode base is getting large enough to
justify this.
