i started doing that to the SBL.cidr once i noticed something
akin to what is mentioned below ::

i also initially thought: "hmm, takes forever, sux, what's wrong?",
but eventually it ran thru OK.
makes me wonder if this is where you start thinking about
the borderline between featurebloat and using your tools --
as in, using things in your daily.local or weekly.local to
pull down the .cidr ( or whatever ) files and changing spamd.conf
to use a file method and not http method; versus introducing
new feature into spamd/spamd-setup where it has mirroring
capabilities, or timestamp checking or something so it doesn't
re-fetch the http files listed in all:\ declaration..
tho regardless of daily.local anything, diffs might be
nice, rather than fetching the whole file each time ( multiplied
by however many hundred/thousand of us are using spamd ).
the magical theoretical diffs could either be server-side,
if the owner(s) or site(s) such as the okean one fancied to
put up diffs in an effort to reduce bandwidth usage; or
we could have a quasi-official mirror of the sites which
would provide the diffs -- ... ahhhh... i could perhaps do
it, depending on if the guy who runs our abuse department
has no problem with me serving it up off my residential
adsl link; but also i don't have 100% uptime and perhaps
the community would not appreciate me randomly screwing with
pf.conf on the machine i'm supposed to be keeping up...
