Interesting, I hadn't thought of using it like that. When doing this,
does it download the "from-0" pack files?

"swupd bundle-add" uses those; I'm less sure about verify. It would have
to detect that it misses all files from the os-core bundle and then as a
special optimization get the pack file instead of individual files.

Speaking of bundles, is that concept something that you find useful for
your purposes? It's not strictly needed for a pure system update
