Thanks for the effort, however it looks like you've looked at the combined size 
of all subpackages of a package, for example ogre which is mine:

Has a main package of only 2 Mb, most of the size increase is explained by the 
adding of a new samples sub package which ways in at 15Mb (previously the 
samples were unpackaged).

The rest of the size increase seems to be due to errors in the way you've 
calculated the size, the FE6 ogre, excluding debuginfo ways in at 10 Mb 
(x86_64), the F7 one at 25 Mb.
