It isn't presently due to death-by-http-request, but if we added the concept of a "null delta" (see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=721799 ) then performance would be very similar.  Possibly even better, because ostree is multithreaded, whereas GNU tar is not.  And of course you'd have the ability to do online incremental atomic updates.

That's fine, but tar is *way* easier for users to create :)

As far as this patch goes I think I'll drop it. If they're using
anaconda to install tars they need to make sure they have the stuff that
anaconda needs, /tmp being the least of these things, and ideally should
use anaconda to create their tar in the firstplace (eg. using
livemedia-creator or anaconda --dirinstall).
