I became aware of zsync on a thread on usenet.
Would this be interesting to have? :-? :-)

I have used it some years ago and found it to be too much effort for
what it gave.
e.g. Tumbleweed .iso files have changing build numbers, so running
zsync on the new file, would not find your previous download without
some wrapper scripts. Would need something like rsync's --fuzzy option.

Additionally it might make the OBS publisher slower.

Also, several openSUSE mirrors already offer public rsync access
and for TW, you don't keep it updated by downloading isos, do you?

Maybe it could be more useful for Leap isos - but there we already
have torrent files which are even nicer, because they allow me to
provide extra bandwidth to downloaders whenever I like.
