Not so trivial to put behind a web interface or the download tracker
though. Is it really necessary to have a separate archive downloads
site? It's not like the old ones get in the way, or cost anything other
than disk space on the mirrors to store (and I've only ever heard mirror
admins say how small our site is compared to many others!).

Plus of course, weren't we trying to reduce the number of VMs/sites?
