@joerg.sonnenberger: if you are willing to wait just a week or two more, I
think the next version of the wire protocol that I'm writing will make the
"pullbundles" feature significantly better. Specifically, servers will be able
to send multiple bundle2 bundles or parts with independent compression
settings. In other words, a pullbundles aware server-side handler could
"stream" pre-generated bundles from disk and then dynamically emit the data not
found in any pre-generated bundles, applying compression for just the dynamic
I don't wish to create stop energy and discourage you from working on this
feature. But at the same time, I'm reluctant to add new features to the
existing wire protocol because the new mechanism will be much, much better and
will make features like pullbundles even better.
