There's actually work underway to get to where we can enable presto by
default.  Jonathan took a number of patches from me to clean things up a
bit and those are present in the most recent presto release (0.4.0).
Also, there's some work starting to get underway to add the support
within the buildsystem for deltarpm generation.  This will make it
possible for us to create and distribute them natively as part of the
distro/update build process.

So the short answer is, we're working on it and it's currently being
tracked as a proposed feature for Fedora 8[1]
