I'm going to look at mirroring it onto the same server that runs 
ftp.postgresql.org ... archives is the worst site that we run, since its 
all a bunch of little flat files, so when it gets indexed by the various 
search engines, disk I/O goes through the roof ... we had googlebot index 
it once where we had to literally shut down the server for a few minutes 
while we waited for load to drop ...

Will work on this this weekend
