Dunno if they do it like this, but I could imagine a system where the
updates are personalized. So if you need a jump between 7 versions, it
will be generated for you and then cached for other people. The cache
could be limited for budget reasons of course, which would limit the
amount of 'behind the times' people that would still receive an
inremental update.
