I'd rather not do that, as following that logic we may end up with
umpteen copies of the same file. There's also the disk/bandwidth
overhead of around 80 mirror sites to consider, and the fact that it
implies there is a difference between the packages.

Yup, I just haven't got around to that yet (I only added them to the
existing layout a couple of days ago).

No, because that can cause significant rsync traffic as the mirrors
delete the moved files, and then download them again. Moving files
shouldn't be taken lightly on large mirror networks :-). I dread to
think what effect this change is going to have on svr4.postgresql.org as
it is!!

OK, look forward to it. The closest we have so far is the debian stuff
of course - Raphael might be able to provide some pointers on that.
