Hmm... I think the current view is it's better to have a mirror with a
different directory than no mirror at all. it's easily dealt with from
the website side of things but just generating the appropriate links. do
you have a breakdown on what the official directory structure ought to
look like, and how many mirrors would be affected if we dropped them for
non-compliance?  

(note even if we don't shut them off, i do think we could suggest a
"preferred directory structure" in the non-existent "howto mirror" doc
that dave and i send out)
