delta d
in maths a delta is a finite increment
measure a change d here the d1
the letter d came from dapper from upstream

The inspiration was Mark Shuttleworth's comment about the expense in

Looking at a distro as a complete unit it is a set of deltas from the
upstream packages.

Managing that delta is another job.
