It's not that hard to fix, there's no need to keep the
rpm in memory at all. The "source" rpm can be limited to some
max size with the down side that the end of the "target" rpm
cannot match the start of the "source" rpm anymore. This shouldn't
do much harm in the real world.
I've already looked at the code, it shouldn't be much work to
implement. I'll try to do it this or next week.
Ok, the current git version now understands a '-m <mbytes>'
option that limits the memory usage.
The downside is that now the deltarpm must be held in memory,
but it should be small in most cases.
