getting updated Lion when it is released

I am contemplating downloading Lion now to try it, but I know that Apple is working on an updated version. What I'm wondering is how it will work for individuals that have already purchased the original version. Will they be able to download the full new version or only the changes? It would be nice to have the equivalent of a combo updater.

I'd imagine the updates aren't rolled in to the Lion download at all, so everyone would be on the same page. It'd essentially be install, then check for updates.

So your expecting delta updates? I think combo updates are good when you start getting into future releases of Lion.
