Hmmm ... its related but not directly.  The incremental fetcher is new code 
that implements an incremental download of the source index.  Its not ready, 
nor is it in production, but that particular test is a check on the size of 
the expected yaml spec.  Its now 16 bytes different.  Interesting.

I just got home and haven't had time to look at this any deeper yet.  Sorry.
