Another question: is this really the next thing to solve? 

There are two things:

	A) Building the image from a small kernel (where all of them are already at the same version: they in priciple fit together)
	B) Updating an image version X to X+1, or even X to X + 15, as fast as possible, with as little data as possible.

These are two different problems... just the result is the same... and one needs both. But B) is not "loading packages".
