If in some way a mirror can regenerate a full, original RPM from all 
delta RPMs, so that Jigdo can use it as a slice, a combination of the 
two would be possible.

Without that ability, all Jigdo recognizes is full RPMs on the ISO image 
(slices), against no (zero) matches in the updates-archive/ folder (all 
partial slices).
