thanks, didn't catch that during my hunting...

But seems the discussion dropped without any serious motivation...
Shall we discuss it another time?

Just my 2 cents in support of the adoption of pdiff:
1) archive for stable release doesn't change so often, pdiff will became useful
2) maybe we can change dinstall crontab to run every 2 hours, it's not
such a loss from my point of view
3) with my not-so-fast connection download ~20 MB of archive is slower
than all debian pdiffs for ~5 days delta.

Let's see if anyone else is interested in this.
