 How would it figure out which ones have been modified? If there was a
 query to build a file from a particular date or later that would work, but
 it seems more effort than just providing everything.

 Once you've downloaded each file once and it is cached locally, then
 checking for updates is realtively cheap using standard HTTP techniques
 (e.g. last-changed or ETag).
